Weather Summary

High pressure will move off the eastern seaboard today, but will result in a sunny and pleasant April afternoon with highs in the 50s to near 60 degrees. As the high nudges eastward, a southerly flow will develop but winds will be much lighter compared to Saturday. Meanwhile, low pressure will move northeast out of the Gulf Coast states and bring a trailing cold front that will push from west to east across the region. This will result in more cloudiness and widespread rain showers on Monday. The clouds and precipitation will keep temperatures on the cool side with highs only in the lower 50s on Monday (average highs for this time of year are in the lower to middle 60s). Rainfall will be generally light to moderate, but a few heavier showers may be embedded in the system as the cold front nears. Most locations can expect anywhere from 1/3 to 3/4" of precipitation by late Monday night. High pressure will then build over the area on Tuesday through Thursday with a mostly sunny sky and seasonable temperatures with highs each day in the lower 60s.
