Sunny Friday and Saturday; Easter Sunday likely wet in the north valley

I am more confident that at least one wave of showers will come through, but it will not be very big, and will not bring a lot of rain. In Riley County, hail measuring 2.5 inches was reported. Last week Northern California set the record for the wettest rain season ever, breaking the drought's grip after five-plus years. That activity should weaken as it moves into our area Saturday morning. For afternoon egg hunts and gatherings the temperatures will top out near 80 in southern areas, 70s in central and northern NH.

As a cold front approaches late in the day, a few showers and thunderstorms will develop.

Easter Sunday will be dry and warm! West southwest wind 8 to 16 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 30 miles per hour. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch possible.

Sunday night will bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms before 8 p.m. and showers will become likely overnight. Chance of precipitation is 60%. A 20 percent chance of showers afterward. Winds will be light and variable. Rain chances climb for the start of next week.

Wednesday: Increasing clouds with the chance for late day showers.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny, cooler. It will turn rather breezy this afternoon with winds gusting up to 30-35 miles per hour. Chance of precipitation is 60%.

Sunday night: Mostly clear, low around 43. So Wednesday, Thursday and Friday we should see partly cloudy and mostly sunny skies.

Sunday night: Showers likely, mainly before 11 p.m. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 61. Cooler air will arrive Monday night and Tuesday with high pressure.

Saturday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 59.

Partly cloudy skies and a few rain showers are possible for Saturday, with a high temperature of 81 degrees.
