Chicago area weather forecast for Thursday, April 1, 2010

Our weather on the first day of April won't be a joke, with warm temperatures and plenty of sunshine.

A weak wave of upper level energy will probably contribute to some cloudiness Thursday morning.  As that little feature exits the region we should find ourselves under mostly sunny skies by midday.  The good dose of sunshine and warm south winds at 10-20 mph should push afternoon highs into the upper 70s to near 80 degrees.

Friday doesn't look much different than Thursday, that is until late in the day.  Head into the evening hours we can expect increasing clouds ahead of a vigorous upper level trough pushing into the central plains.

A developing area of surface low pressure is forecast to lift northeast Friday night.  We could see a few showers or thunderstorms overnight, but the better chance for wet weather will hold off until Saturday.

As the low continues its trek to the northeast it will bring a cold front through the region during the day Saturday.  With this feature showers and some thunderstorms are likely.  Depending on the timing of the front our high temperatures on Saturday may come in the morning.

We should dry out, but be cooler for most of Easter Sunday.  By Sunday evening there is a small chance for a few isolated showers.
