Excellent Easter, but what's next?

After a great Easter Sunday we could see some unsettled weather.

Sunday was the perfect day for Easter egg hunting... bright sunshine and temperatures topping out in the mid 80s! Early fog cleared out by mid morning leaving us with mostly sunny skies and a light breeze. I was out at the UVa baseball game and got a little bit of color! (should have put more sun screen on- sorry mom!)

Early in the evening we started seeing some clouds filter in and even had a severe thunderstorm quickly push through Culpeper County. We continued to see showers and a few storms throughout Sunday evening in northern tiers of the area. The storms came from  a front that stalled just to our west and north. A series of strong storms will continue to spark up along the front that stretches from the north east back down to Texas, and will stay there through Tuesday.

Virginia is on the warm side of the stalled front and we will get to enjoy above average temperatures for the next several days. The warm moist air mass will also bring a lot of instability to the area. With waves of energy riding along the front to our North we could see pop up late afternoon and PM storms. Keep it tuned to Newsplex and for further updates on the next round of storms.

Cheers for now,
