One week to go in April and Springtime temperatures and conditions have FINALLY arrived...but rain showers are primed to return to the region heading into Wednesday.
As warm air surge northward so does moisture from the Gulf of Mexico. We'll first see light showers later tonight becoming more widespread (and a bit heavier in coverage) into the Wednesday morning commute. Despite the overcast skies we won't see temperatures drop back by very much; likely the upper 50s for highs. There isn't a major concern for any river flooding but i'd still pay close attention to any flood-prone low lying areas with the potential for all day rain.
Behind the passing showers is a return to the low 60s under partly cloudy skies as temperatures don't drop off by a ton. The cooler, modified air moves in Sunday as temperatures temporarily slip into the mid 50s but recover into the 60s (and perhaps 70s) by Monday/Tuesday.
