Good Wednesday, folks. It’s a much better looking day taking shape across the Commonwealth, but the best is yet to come. Temps over the next few days will take on much more of a May feel than what we should be seeing for this time of year. By the weekend, a potent storm system targets the region again.

Clouds will break this morning, leaving us with a partly sunny afternoon sky. Temps will take off and reach the 60s.

Thursday finds our southwest wind kicking in, boosting temps into the 70s. There’s a shot at an 80 in the west and southwest.

Friday is when temps can really take off with readings deep into the 70s with a chance for an 80. That would only happen if we have some sunshine. The best chance at an 80 is across the south and southeast.  There is a chance for a shower or storm to go up, with the best opportunity for that being across the northern half of the state.

Saturday may be a bonus day in the 70s as we wait on a potent cold front. That shows up Saturday night and may have showers and a few strong storms ahead of it…

Temps come down just a bit, but don’t really come way down for Sunday and Monday.

The setup for the middle of next week continues to look interesting. The trend toward a deepening trough has been there for a few days, but can we get a storm system to throw a little surprise for early April? The Euro has been showing that possibility for a while. Other models, like the Canadian are getting closer…

The various ensembles are also trending toward a colder than normal look for early April…

There are two things in weather that I absolutely despise… Warm temps in December and cold shots in April/May. Anybody with me on those?

I will have another later today. Make it a good one and take care.
