Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated 7:56 a.m., April 21, 2015

After a few early morning showers, we continue to dry out from Monday night’s rain with a nice westerly wind gusting up to 25 mph at times. Temperatures Tuesday will reach into the upper 60s with sunshine. The winds will calm after about 7 p.m., and temperatures will fall into the upper 40s under clear skies.

Wednesday could bring a few very isolated early morning showers but more scattered rain is expected by the afternoon as a front approaches the region. Temperatures will remain in the upper 60s with a breezy southwesterly wind as well.

By Thursday, high pressure starts to edge in, bringing sunshine but much cooler temperatures. Temperatures will top out around 60 degrees Friday through at least Sunday. Next chance of rain will be on Saturday, but it’s not clear yet how big a chance — the track of the system is still yet to be determined.
