After the front passes some cooler air will move in and temperatures for the start of the new work week will run 10 to 12 degrees below the average or near 70. Things will really cool off Sunday with a high of just 57 degrees to be accompanied by the rain.

Temperatures Sunday afternoon warm into the mid 60s with strong N winds. Stray shower is possible but most of us won't get rain until late Friday night or early Saturday morning.

Winds will also be strong out of the east for a good part of the day.starting from the east-northeast in the morning and then ending from the east-southeast.

Staff reviewed the latest reports from the National Weather Service Forecast Office and made the decision because there is an increased chance of heavy rain, flooding, hail and tornadoes. Although no record highs were broken, temperatures soared past 80 degrees with plenty of nearly early summer-like sunshine, a welcome sight and feel in a spring where reaching 60 degrees has been a challenge.

NW winds are gusting over 45 miles per hour already in some locations to the NW. Saturday morning lows drop into the upper 50s. For comparison, mid 80s is what we see for highs in the height of summer and mid 30s is typical for the dead of winter.

The lowest high temperature on record for April 15th (Sunday) is 42 set in 1972. The dry weather will likely continue into the next weekend.
