April showers, then a return to sunny skies

Spring has finally made an appearance the last few days thanks to a high pressure taking control of the region Tuesday through Thursday, bringing dry weather and spring-like daily high temperatures in the upper 40s to low 50s°F. Today marks a brief change in this pattern as a low pressure system tracks up from the middle Mississippi River Valley and brings rain to our region overnight tonight. Expect a cooler high temperature of 43°F today due to easterly winds and increasing cloud cover ahead of the low. Tomorrow, we’ll see a return to seasonable conditions as the low pressure moves out and another high pressure settles in to take its place (although a chance of showers remains tomorrow morning as the low exits the region). Expect a pleasant weekend with partly sunny to sunny skies and daily highs in the low to mid 50s°F.
