Mild Monday, then turning chilly again

What an amazing Easter weekend!  I hope you had a great holiday & that you also got to enjoy some of the beautiful weather we had.  I got to go for a rare solo run on Saturday afternoon.  I usually take one or both of my kids in the jogging stroller, but on Saturday my little one was napping & my oldest wanted to stay home and play on the swing set.  It was one of those magical runs where the weather was great, I felt even better… and therefore ran an extra mile.  I probably could have gone even farther, but weekends are so busy… and we had eggs to color!  :)   Saturday’s high was 65… and Sunday made it up to 63.  It definitely felt a little cooler on Easter, with that brisk wind.  I did another run Sunday–this time taking along my daughter in the jogger.  We had quite a bit of wind resistance!

Today will be pretty similar to Sunday, weather-wise:  highs in the low 60s, with an afternoon breeze.  BUT we won’t have the crystal clear blue sky we enjoyed over the weekend.  As a weak disturbance moves through, we’ll see more cloud cover, and we even have the chance of a spotty shower:

The lower levels are very dry right now–morning dew points are in the 20s.  So what we’re seeing on Live Doppler 2X above is probably not making it to the ground at this point.  We still can’t rule out a shower or two, with the disturbance coming through this afternoon.  Behind this feature, cold air moves in again.  Tonight’s low will drop into the mid-30s… but a breeze should help prevent a widespread frost.  Breezy and chilly conditions prevail Tuesday afternoon, as we’ll likely be stuck in the upper 40s with a few sprinkles around.  Then, Tuesday night… we will drop near freezing again:

So it will be another morning to protect the plants!  Then, a warming trend looks to set up as we head towards the weekend.  We could be back in the 70s again, but it does look to come along with the chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms… so stay tuned!
