Easter WeekendMarch 30th, 2013 at 4:40 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
<–photo from the University of Dayton. Happy Easter, everyone. We’ve had a pretty thick frost form this Sat. AM and there are some patches of fog for the early morning. Those will evaporate as the sun comes up and the wind picks up. We’ll have some high clouds overhead, but partly sunny and warm with highs in the mid 50s (a bit cooler at Lake Michigan). This should be the warmest day since late Jan. Rain is likely Sat. night, with the models printing out anywhere from 1/10th inch to 1/3rd inch. The rain should move east around daybreak Sunday and most of Sunday will be dry. Monday and Tuesday will be breezy and pretty cool for early April with temperatures mostly in the mid-upper 30s during the day. Those may very well be the last 2 days that stay that cold. The air is very dry overall, but with air a mile above ground down to 10 above, we’ll likely get some lake-effect flurries, esp. in NW Lower MI and the U.P. Temperatures moderate a bit for Weds. PM and Thurs. Grand Rapids is still at 4.3 deg. cooler than avg. for March. I’ll put radar and the links up at the top later this evening.
