Easter Weekend: Warm -- But How Wet?

Jason Samenow @ 7:15 AM

The major weathermaker for the weekend will be a front with waves of low pressure riding along it. The good news is that most of these waves will pass to our south -- providing only slight chances of showers and thunderstorms both days. All in all, expect a warm, mostly cloudy and dry weekend but with the risk of afternoon/evening thunderstorms.

Saturday Forecast

For the early birds, there is about a 50% chance of showers prior to about 9am, followed by variably cloudy skies in the afternoon. As Camden and Steve mentioned yesterday, afternoon temperatures will be quite mild and a shower or thunderstorm can't be ruled out late (30% chance). Expect highs in the low 80s.

Easter Sunday Forecast

After the front slips through Saturday night, expect a slightly cooler afternoon. But another advancing wave (from the west) will bring a 30% chance of showers and thunderstorms by the afternoon and evening, with greater probabilities south of DC--along the front. High temperatures should be in the low 70s. Weather for church services should by dry, by and large.

Tropical Topics

The Associated Press reports (found via WxNation Wire) that until recently, one tropical storm from last hurricane season was undetected. With addition of the new storm that formed and discovered during reanalysis, the total number of tropical cyclones that formed was 28 or 180% the long-term average of 10.
