A major spring warm-up with a surge of warmer air through Sunday afternoon. This will send highs through the middle 50s, which will be more typical of early April!
A major powerhouse storm arriving on the West Coast today will slam California with heavy rain. Big snow from the Rockies through the southern and northern Plains. This storm brings us our next Alert Day.
Alert Day: Tuesday. Much of Tuesday will be chilly, upper 30s and lower 40s. However, late in the evening Tuesday we will surge into the lower 50s ahead of a powerful cold front. Heavy rain, possibly in excess of 1" with gusty winds will be expected. We may even get a rumble of thunder as the cold front arrives Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.
