The work week got off to a great start with sunny skies. The high temperature was 77 degrees, making Monday the warmest day of the year so far. Our streak of 70-degree days will stretch for two more days before our next storm system rolls in.
Scattered showers will develop ahead of a cold front Wednesday night. Rain and a few isolated thunderstorms will be more widespread across the state Thursday. Our weather will stay unsettled with a daily chance for scattered showers in the forecast through the weekend.
April is one of the wettest and fastest warming months of the year. We average 3.81″ of rain and severe storms are common. We average four tornadoes during the month.
