Patrick Rockey’s Live VIPIR Forecast

The weather tug-of-war will continue this week. But spring is starting to win the battle with winter. Our highs are getting higher and our lows aren’t quite as low.

Tuesday will bring a nice warm up. Ahead of an approaching cold front, we’ll enjoy a southwest breeze that will push temperatures into the upper 60s and lower 70s. We’ll enjoy plenty of sunshine through the day. But later in the afternoon, we’ll start to see the clouds start to thicken up ahead of the cold front.

That cold front won’t have a lot of moisture to work with. But we may see a few showers late Tuesday night and very early Wednesday morning.

Sunshine returns through the day on Wednesday. But we’re expecting high temperatures only in the 50s.

With yet another cold front approaching, we’ll warm back into the upper 60s and lower 70s on Thursday and into the mid 70s on Friday. But as that cold front moves in, we could see showers and storms by Friday afternoon. It looks like some of the wet weather will stick around for Saturday. But Easter Sunday is looking sunny and cool, with highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s.
