Outlook to April 16 (70s to Even Perhaps 80 Degrees On the Horizon)………….& Beyond

March 30th, 2013 at 10:49 am by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog


I heard the very first spring peeper frogs last Saturday.  When you hear the very first ones, my grandpa always told me you have 3 more waves of hard freezes.  Since last Saturday, we’ve had one wave & another one will arrive this week, meaning we would only have one more wave of mid 20s after this week until next fall.


Today look good with mostly sunny skies & highs near 61, followed by increasing clouds later in the day.  Scattered showers will arrive this evening-tonight & end by late night-early Sunday with lows in the mid 40s.  It does not look like a lot of rainfall with generally 0.25″ or less.

Tomorrow looks good, just windy from the west & west-southwest to 31 mph & highs near 60 with skies becoming partly cloudy.


Secondary cold front will arrive Sunday night-early Monday with a few scattered showers, followed by some brief scattered snow showers as temperatures drop to 33 behind front by early Monday.

If there is any accumulation, it would be the grass whitened in some places & perhaps a coating on some car tops & roofs.

With windy conditions & perhaps some sun appearing with the clouds Monday afternoon, highs will struggle their way up to 42.


After a cool Tuesday & a couple of cold nights at 20-25, 50s will return Wednesday & Thursday with mid to upper 60s by Friday & perhaps 70 by Saturday.  Some showers & t’storms are possible very late next Saturday.


There are signs of mid to upper 70s (80 in places?) by next Wednesday with dry weather after the rain/storms late Saturday-Sunday.  After that, we may see a brief 2-3 day cool-down to 50s & 60s, followed by more 70s by April 16.

With this warmth, we will need to begin to watch t’storm, even severe weather threat.

POST-APRIL 16………….

Analog points towards a stretch of 80s late month in April.

    Thank you Chad! This time last year the dog wood and quince bush were in full bloom, we even found a few mushrooms:) Hope all have a wonderful weekend!

    Bring on the storms!

    Thanks Chad! I know I am looking forward to warmer weather now. We planted our potatoes, lettuce, radishes and onions yesterday. I’m ready to go mushroom hunting now. My father-in-law seen some in a store going for 19.95 for just a half a pound. I just hope that I will be able to find some new places to go to.

    Can we hold the peeper frogs for ransom, to keep the warm weather here? ;-)

    Love the sounds of frogs! And I am really enjoying hearing more and more birds each day! What I am NOT looking forward to is severe wx. While I enjoy the greening of grass and flowers blooming, for me it means the dreaded severe weather.

    For now it is EASTER MORNING, rejoice and give thanks.

    We have a shower, rather heavy, with graupel or very small hail the size of rock salt. Temp hit a high of 60*.
