Storms to rumble through Easter weekend in Lehigh Valley
Apr 17 2017
Temperatures will slowly be warming up with highs reaching the middle 80s. With the words "so far" bring operative. Very summer-like with the diurnally driven convection, but still no widespread rain and no threat of severe weather showing up the next 7-10 days; certainly a calm pattern for the second half of April.
Saturday: A chance of showers, mainly after 2pm. Gives us sun and a quick warm up, a hit of rain & storms and then a cool down.
Tonight: Mostly clear, with a low around 61.
Enjoy sunny skies today with an afternoon high temp in the upper 50s to near 60 degrees and a light north wind 5-10 miles per hour.
But the chance of a few showers and storms may necessitate a radar check before any egg hunts. Otherwise, mostly cloudy tomorrow with some clearing late in the day. Highs will be into the upper 40's and lower 50's. Southwesterly winds and sunny skies early in the day should push afternoon highs near the city into the upper 70s if not the mid 80s. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 63. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 42.
Tuesday night - A chance of showers. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.
Tuesday. Mostly sunny, with a high near 79. Partly sunny, with a high near 64. Chance of precipitation is 70 percent. Saturday evening and overnight into early Sunday, showers spread northeast along a warm front. Southeast wind 3 to 7 miles per hour.
Rain chances look to continue all through next week.
If warm air does make it in on Saturday, the best chance for temperatures into the 70s will be across Western New York and the Finger Lakes.
