31 Day Streak of Above Average Temperatures Ends Today!

Nature almost skipped right into summer but decided on a Spring rewind. Ready or not our coolest Spring day of the year is here. In fact it will be our coolest day since March 10th with highs only in the upper 60s at the beach to lower 70s inland. A chilly northeast breeze will usher in the chill at 12-25 mph with higher gusts.

A small craft advisory continues for seas building from 8 to 11 feet and a lake wind advisory is in effect. Tonight we will enjoy bright moonlight but it will be chilly with temperatures dropping into the lower to middle 40s inland to the middle 50s at the beach. Have the jackets ready for Easter sunrise at 7:07 a.m.

The good news is polar high pressure moves east Sunday afternoon helping our temperatures bounce back to near 80 degrees with great weather for a trip to Grandmas or even a boat ride! Seas will decrease from 3-5 feet and a surf will be at 2-4 feet with much warmer middle 70s at the beach.

The long-range forecast features another strong spring front by mid-week that will bring more jacket weather but don't expect any rain with a dry northwest flow continuing to dominate our weather.
