A cool start to easter, but warm and sunny this afternoon

Posted: Updated:
(WRCB) - Good Sunday.  Your Easter morning has turned out to be just a bit cool with lows this morning ranging from the upper 30s in the mountains to the mid 40s in the valley.

This afternoon, we will warm up quite a bit as highs climb to the mid to upper 70s.  The low pressure that brought the clouds and light showers yesterday continues to pull away leaving in it's wake nothing but sunshine.

The sunny skies continue Monday as we warm up to about 78.  The average high is 73.  We will be above that all next week.

The next chance of rain will be Tuesday as another front presses through.  It will bring scattered showers and storms late Tuesday morning into the afternoon, then we will clear out again Wednesday and Thursday.  More showers and storms are likely Friday, and we MAY see them lingering into next weekend.  I am sure we will tweak that weekend forecast, though.

Pollen counts remain extremely heavy, so take whatever precautions you need as you head out for Easter morning.

    Hold on. The heat and humidity are going to continue through the weekend. Today, look for a high of 95 and a heat index near 100. We won't see the same coverage of storms that we saw last night, but with this much heat and humidity in place you never want to completely rule out one or two storms breaking through.More

    Our average highs should be sliding downward during the second half of August. We are going to experience the exact opposite over the next few days.More
