April Showers

The saying goes "April showers bring May flowers." We will certainly get to experience those April showers this week, as we return to work after the break.

A large front that produced severe storms over the plains (including some tornadoes) has stalled over us and most of the United States for the duration of this week. It will give us dreary conditions: cold and damp with on-and-off rain showers, and possible snow showers at night. Temperatures will remain below 50°F (10°C) during the day, and will fall to near freezing at night.

As far as the extended forecast, the temperatures appear to be holding below 60°F (16°C) for the next few weeks, but there is a clearing trend towards this weekend.

Today: Clouds and some rain. High 41°F (5°C).
