Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated 6:40 a.m., April 27, 2015
With any luck, we are turning the corner as temperatures start to push back to near normal through this week. Monday, however, not so much: Daytime highs will top out in the lower to mid-60s, with increasing clouds through the day. Winds will pick up after the lunch hour and continue for much of the day. There is also a threat for some isolated afternoon showers/sprinkles moving through the region as an upper-level trough passes through, but any precipitation we see will be spotty and light. Winds will stay around the 10 mph range overnight and continue through the first part of Tuesday.
Sunshine will return Tuesday with temperatures rising to near 70 degrees! Clouds will be on the increase on Wednesday as a storm system attempts to get organized out of the deep south. We could experience some rain showers late Wednesday night and through much of the day on Thursday as this storm system tracks out of the Gulf and towards the mid-Atlantic, but it’s hard to say for sure yet. High pressure builds back in for what now looks like a wonderful and seasonable weekend.
