Good morning WABBLES and happy Monday! Who is ready to start and endure the first full week of April with me? I’m sure a lot of you are working and hunkered down at home. That doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the weather outdoors as the forecast is calling for a pleasant and warm start to the week.
Beautiful Monday In-Store
Waking up, you can expect pleasant conditions with clear skies. Temperatures to start the day bottom out right around 50 degrees.
Temperatures will rebound as a ridge of high pressure over the Great Lakes pushes towards the east throughout the day.
The ridge of high-pressure east of the area will crank up the return flow. The anti-cyclonic (clockwise) flow around a high pressure that is positioned east of the area allows for winds from the south and southeast to bring warmer air into the area.
High temperatures across WABBLES rise well into the 70s under mostly sunny skies.
Rain Chances Return
The warm start to the week continues heading into Tuesday, but an increase in rain chances accompany the warm weather. Rain chances increase as a shortwave trough, a disturbance in the atmosphere moves into the region from the northwest.
Rain chances will be greater north of the area, but you can’t rule out a few showers in WABBLES, something to keep an eye on. High temperatures will be well into the 70s once again.
That wraps up today’s forecast. I hope you have a great Monday! Make sure to look for the Afternoon Video Update on Facebook and the Afternoon Weather Story on Twitter, only at @wxornotBG. Stay safe!
