Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated 6:02 a.m., April 1, 2015
After a few rain showers Tuesday, we are dry for the next two days as high pressure wedges into the region. Temperatures Wednesday will be slightly cooler but without the wind. Expect daytime highs to climb into the mid to upper 50s with all sunshine. Clear skies will continue overnight with a light southerly wind. Overnight lows will fall to the upper 30s/lower 40s – just about seasonable for this time of year.
Most of the day will remain sunny on Thursday. Temperature will top out around 70 degrees with a few clouds increasing through the afternoon and a strong southwesterly wind (we will once again have to monitor the fire threat).
Enjoy the stellar day that will be with us on Thursday because rain is forecast for Friday. There could be a few light showers that develop overnight on Thursday leading into Friday as a warm front lifts north through the region. Most of the rain will fall through the day on Friday as a cold front edges toward the east coast. Rain could be heavy at times and there could even be a few thunderstorms. Anywhere for 0.50″ to around 1.00” of rain is expected to fall by the time it moves out of here by Saturday morning. Temperatures on Friday will still make it to the lower to mid-70s.
By Saturday, we are looking at temperature tumbling through the day, starting in the upper 50s overnight and continuing to slowly fall through the 50s by Saturday afternoon. There will be rapid clearing by mid-morning on Saturday with winds kicking up out of the northwest. Still a little breezy on Easter after a chilly start in the morning (temperatures in the morning will start around 40 degrees so bundle up for early service) but temps will eventually warm up into the lower 60s with a southwesterly wind on Easter Day.

The skies will be clear Wednesday; that's the good news. The bad news is, that's because a cold front is moving in. Highs will only hit the mid-50s. The real warmth comes Thursday.
