A beautiful day is unfolding with clear blue skies above. Temperatures will remain chilly near 60, but lots of sunshine will make things feel a little warmer than they are. For the present conditions, a high pressure system can be thanked for this fair weather. Expect similar conditions the next couple of days before showers find their way back in this weekend.
As indicated above, little activity is expected the next few days. Temperatures will gradually warm with the 70's returning on Friday. By Friday night, the next rain maker arrives. Scattered showers will work through much of the weekend before clearer weather again returns early next week.
Longer term looks to be normal, temperature-wise, with average to slightly above average temperatures to close out April. The same cannot be said for precipitation, as above average precipitation is more than likely. The latest data suggests lots of rainfall & even storm activity around the 23rd. Again this is numerous days out and many changes are likely. As for now, enjoy the sunshine and warming temperatures in the coming days.
If you have any tender plants or crops, cover them tonight! Low's will be back down in the mid 30's (for the valley) with freezing temperatures in the higher elevations. Patchy frost is likely to develop for the valley with sub-freezing temperatures for those in the northern Valley, Plateau, and Smokies.
