Sunday was glorious across the Coulee Region with temperatures climbing into the upper 40’s and a clear blue sky full of sunshine to pull us out of the wintry blues we held at the end of last week.
We look ahead into the 3rd week of April now and things are looking up. Temperatures will glide into a more average trend and the ‘April showers’ theme moving in will stomp any doubt you may have had about how spring is supposed to go, compared to how it’s gone.
We kick off the chances of rain later Monday. It will start sunny but clouds increase during the day and a few scattered sprinkles may hit the pavement later in the day. It’s really not until late Tuesday that the rain gauge will need to be fired up, because a large system is plotting it’s attack across a major portion of country. At least this one will stay warm enough to produce mainly rain, and possibly some thunder, through Friday.
There is a slight chance of snow flurries cutting into the spring fun though as the system exits the Midwest. Whether this accumulates or not has yet to be identified by models, since we’re too far out. But as always, we’ll keep you posted. You may want to dig out the umbrella from that shelf in the garage, or front closet storage, before Wednesday just to be safe.
