StormTrack 5 meteorologists are tracking a sun-sational Easter. With plenty of sunshine the temperatures will warm to slightly above normal levels. Humidity will be low. You may need a jacket to be comfortable outside Easter morning for sunrise services (sunrise is around 6:50 am).
Monday should start out nice but clouds will be increasing with a late day chance of rain. Better chances of scattered showers and thunderstorms will arrive Monday night through Tuesday. With this system a rumble of thunder isn't out of the question.
Nice weather will return Wednesday and Thursday with mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will be reaching well above normal, into the upper 70s!
Highs will be in the low to middle 70s Sunday through Wednesday. Upper 70s Thursday. Lows in the 40s through Sunday night, near 50 Monday night, and 40s again Tuesday and Wednesday nights.
You can get the latest forecast, radar, and weather information on News 5, WCYB.com, and on the StormTrack 5 weather app.
Our normal high is 69°, low 43°.
