Spring sunshine could give way to wintry washout for Easter weekend

13 April 2017, 01:45 | Clarence Schmidt

Mostly clear skies and chilly temperatures will develop, with a low temperature of 47 degrees. But be mindful Easter Sunday is looking pretty toasty, so make sure you hunt for some shade and water along with those Easter eggs. Thursday will start out sunny but clouds will build in through the day.

"Experts forecast the United Kingdom will be separated by a north-south divide with warmer, bright weather to the south and stormy showers and below average temperatures for those in the north and Scotland". Breezy conditions extend through Friday before we get a break for the weekend.

Saturday will be the more "dry" day of the weekend - Easter Sunday will have scattered showers throughout. After that, we're all dry for the remainder of the day.

United States claim doubles success to keep Davis Cup hopes alive
Australia's Sam Groth and John Peers are not low-ranked journeymen, as was the Swiss team Adrien Bossel and Henri Laaksonen. But the U.S hasn't won the Davis Cup since 2007, Australia since 2003.

Hastily bought barbecues and newly assembled sunloungers might gather dust this Easter weekend as the season's surprise heatwave subsides to colder levels.

NEXT WEEK: A surface front will drift down toward the Alabama/Tennessee border, and we will mention the chance of scattered showers Monday and Tuesday, but rain amounts won't be especially heavy. But a few quick checks of your auto before you set out can drastically reduce the chances of you needing assistance.

So, instead of upper 70s / near 80° weather, temps fall down into the low-mid 60s for Thursday with mid-upper 60s on Friday. We'll see a mix of sun and clouds this afternoon with a high of 68. This time, it's a cold front that triggers the rain and thunder. Afternoon high temperatures will be around 74 degrees.
