The lows and highs and lows of Easter weekend


Through the weekend, high pressure will build over the area with afternoon highs gradually warmer by Sunday but still slightly below 80 degrees by afternoon. Snow accumulations should light for lower valleys and minor accumulations at pass level or higher.

A cold front will slowly approach the islands from the northwest this weekend. Riding in on those cold winds could be a few leftover lake effect snow showers as skies begin to gradually clear. Winds will be cool and gusty, out of the Northeast between 10-15 miles per hour, keeping things along the coast feeling even cooler. Ahead of the front will be mild temperatures in the upper 50s and lower 60s overnight with showers developing late.

The Easter weekend will feature changes for the region in terms of wind, clouds and temperatures.

Biggest space telescope launch delayed
For now, all of us will have to wait and see as NASA tries to get the project back on track and into space. On Tuesday, senior officials at NASA announced yet another delay for the world-class instrument.

A cold front will be pushing through the Midlands late on Wednesday. Temperatures fall through the 50s during the evening, bottoming out around 40 degrees on Easter morning. Rain will clear out for Easter Sunday. Skies will be partly cloudy and winds will be light from the ESE blowing up to 15 miles per hour.

Friday: Partly sunny, with a high near 61. South winds will be around 5 miles per hour. Later in the morning, chances of rain drop, but cloudy skies will stick around, so Akronites will need a parka, but no sunglasses. We expect spotty showers into Thursday night.
