Chilly April weather, gradual improvement next few days


A large southward in the upper-level flow is making it feel more like late winter than early spring. We started the day with temperatures in the upper 20s and a widespread freeze, with light northwesterly winds and isolated flurries/sprinkles.

High pressure will provide some sunshine, mixing with instability clouds and isolated showers through mid-afternoon. Expect another unseasonably chilly day, as temperatures stay in the 40s, well below the normal of 66 degrees. A freeze warning is in effect again early Friday, as temperatures dip to near or a little below freezing under mainly clear skies and a slight southwest breeze.

A little milder weather and a light southerly flow will boost readings closer to seasonal levels Friday, though still crisp, with temperatures inching up near 60 degrees. Low pressure will move across the Southern states Saturday, bringing periods of rain. Some clearing will follow Sunday, but turning cooler again with a chilly northwest wind.

A significant warmup next week will see temperatures rebound into the 60s Monday and 70s Tuesday in a southwesterly flow.
