Looking into Easter Weekend, it looks mild with 50's Saturday and upper 40's Sunday with a slight chance for showers on Sunday. Beyond Easter, we have three large weather stories here in the Stateline. First, we will be experiencing a significant warm up Monday through Wednesday with 60's likely on both Tuesday and Wednesday. There will be 70's just one state to our west in Iowa. This warmth will be pulled north by strong southerly winds ahead of a powerful cold front that will swing through here late Wednesday night. That cold front will bring the region back to reality on Thursday and Friday with highs in the 40's.
That cold front will bring with it the opportunity for showers and thunderstorms as there will be sufficient warmth and instability available for storms to develop along the front. Is severe weather a possibility? It is a little too early to answer that question with high levels of confidence, but as it appears now, it looks like we will not have a large threat for strong or severe thunderstorms.
