Weather - April Cool


April Cool

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

A week makes a world of difference. With temperatures into the middle 70s on Monday, we were 20 degrees above normal for this time of year. There will be a strong drop in temperatures today after the passage of a cold front yesterday evening. Clear skies will be marred slightly during the afternoon and evening as mid-level atmospheric waves scud through the region. Wednesday is also appearing promising but the cool down will continue; early morning temperatures will dip below freezing. But with a high pressure ridge holding firm in the east, we should be protected from inclement weather through to the weekend.

Tuesday: Distinctly cooler and breezy. Mostly clear skies early, some afternoon clouds. High 49F (9C).

Tonight: Continued breezy and cool. Clearing, low 29F (-1C).

Wednesday: Clear and fair. High 47F (8C). Low 28F (-2C).

Thursday: Pleasant. High around 45F (7C). Low around 30F (-1C).
