I’m forecasting a high of 80º at BDL on Monday! Awesome! The nice thing about this warm up is that though we’ll only see one day near 80º most of next week looks pleasant with temperatures falling back into the mid 60s. It appears that next week will be solidly above normal. Something we haven’t seen much of recently.
Over the weekend there’s the potential for a major severe weather outbreak across the Plains. Oddly the focus of the severe weather appears to be in the upper Mississippi River valley which is unusual for the time of year. Normally big severe weather in April occurs in the heart of tornado alley (Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas).
