Monday April 5 2021

We continue the nice weather that brought the lower 70s on Easter Sunday. However, the weather pattern will be changing this week.  You may have seen a rain drop on your weather app almost every day this week. There is some truth to that, but needs explaining as most of the days will be nice.


Morning Surface Weather

The breeze will be increasing today as to storms to our north funnel the air.  The Low east of Maine has been retrograding (moving back west) and stalling off the coast.  

The system in the Great Lakes will be sending clouds in later today, then a period of showers… but mostly overnight.

Morning Temperatures

The cloud cover last night kept temps mild. No record lows this time… This gives us a good foundation for when the sun returns.

Sunshine Sate Of Mind

I am done with the cold and snow (for the season). I am embracing my wife’s mantra of Sunshine State of Mind.

This was designed by Shannon Berk and we will be wearing it through spring and to the beach.

Double Benefit: Proceeds will be split between our nonprofit Just In Power Kids and the development of my new weather website. That has been scheduled to be ready to launch in May.
