Nice Weekend! Brief Bout of Chilly Weather, Then Spring-like with Nearly 6 Dry Days (Followed by That Above-Normal Precip)March 31st, 2013 at 11:00 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! The weather was certainly nice with 59 at WLFI Saturday & 61 today with any showers confined to Saturday night-early Sunday & late this evening-tonight (with secondary cold front).
Cold front has moved through with a few showers & gusty winds. After that 61 today, it is now 45 behind front.
Bryan Meharry caught a nice shot of a rainbow with a few of these approaching showers this evening at the Purdue Research Park in Lafayette. In the second pic, Holly Chilcot snapped a photo of an Easter rainbow with a passing evening shower near Buck Creek, in Tippecanoe County. In the third pic, Ryan Harber’s photo shows a rainbow in West Lafayette (with snow pile remains of last Sunday-Sunday night’s heavy snow) looking towards Sagamore Parkway (U.S. 52) & Nighthawk.
Kathy Golden caught a pic of the nice cumulus clouds of Eastern Sunday in the first pic. Kaitlyn Sullivan caught the Easter rainbow after a brief shower at U.S. 52 & Klondike Road in West Lafayette (looking east).
Area of scattered snow showers will pivot southeastward out of Iowa & Missouri behind front later tonight-early Monday. So, some scattered flurries & snow showers are possible in places with lows near 33. A few of you may have your grass whitened &/or car top/home roof whitened. However, highs by afternoon will run near 42 with partly to mostly cloudy skies.
After two nights at 20-25 degrees, it will turn much warmer to end the week after near 6 dry days. Mid to upper 60s are possible Friday & even 70 is possible in places Saturday. However, some showers & t’storms are possible late Saturday-Saturday night & into Sunday. Highs Sunday look to be in the 60s.
I think very early fieldwork (ammonia application) may begin this week with even some farmers spraying for winter-early spring annuals like henbit & chickweed in fields, due to drier weather.
