This forecast will have you (bunny) hopping for joy
Good morning! I can barely contain my excitement for this Easter weekend forecast (there’s nothing better than warm and dry weather for Easter egg hunts). Saturday will be amazing with highs in the mid to upper 70s and mostly sunny skies with a southerly breeze. Cloud cover does increase on Sunday from the west to the east but we stay dry and warm up into the mid-70s once again. Sunday morning will also be really mild with lows tonight only falling into the low 50s.
Springfield and much of the area is more than a half foot below where we should be for rainfall so far this year so we need the rain, I’m just glad it holds off for all the Easter celebrations. Rain moves in Sunday night from the west to the east and lasts on and off until Monday night. We could get a few thunderstorms thrown in the mix as well, as of now I’m not expecting anything severe. Temperatures will be a little cooler, low 70s, Monday and Tuesday but we’re right back to the mid and upper 70s by Wednesday. Rain moves back into the forecast late Thursday and Friday.
