Tuscarawas Valley Easter weekend weather preview

Easter weekend is one of those holidays that families get together to enjoy. And weather has a big impact on how we spend the day. In those regards I’ve taken some time today to fill everyone in on what we might expect over the Easter weekend.Our weather around Easter varies dramatically depending on when the holiday occurs. It’s perfectly logical to accept the fact that early Easters sometimes bring snow and wet, cold rain.

Our weather around Easter varies dramatically depending on when the holiday occurs. It’s perfectly logical to accept the fact that early Easters sometimes bring snow and wet, cold rain and generally not-so-nice weather. When Easter falls later in spring we tend to have mild and pleasant weather.

This year Easter Sunday will be one of the warm ones but unfortunately, it is also looking wet and stormy.

Many folks have Good Friday off work or maybe work only part of the day. It will be a nice day to have off. High pressure will remain in control of the weather here in east-central Ohio and that means sunshine. Temperatures will also be quite nice running in the low 70s Friday afternoon.

Good Friday will be a good day.

A warm front lifting through east-central Ohio on Saturday will bring the warmest day of the weekend. It will be a cloudier day, however, and a few spotty showers will be possible as the front makes its way through the region.

Saturday won’t be a washout by any means, but there will be the chance for a shower or two – especially during the morning. A spring thunderstorm may also accompany the front.

Temperatures behind the warm front will soar to the upper 70s and it will turn noticeably humid. We’ll remain quite mild Saturday night with increasing cloud cover.

On Easter Sunday low pressure will travel east across the upper Great Lakes dragging a cold front west to east across Ohio. With plenty of warm moist air in place out ahead of the cold front, showers and thunderstorms will become more likely as the day progresses.

WILL STORMS BE SEVERE?
With abundant moisture and warm air, it wouldn’t take much for any storms on Easter to get rambunctious. As of today, the risk for severe storms is pretty low, but I don’t want to take severe possibilities completely off the table yet. It’s still quite a way out and I’d like to wait and see if all the ingredients can come together.

At the very least, I think we can count on rain becoming more likely during the afternoon with thunderstorms also being a good possibility. If you plan on going to early morning services, you should be okay. Any egg hunts or outdoor activities with the family should be okay if you get them in during the morning. Showers and thunderstorms will be more of a threat during the afternoon/evening.

Temperatures on Easter will be good too with most neighborhoods reaching the mid/upper 70s Sunday afternoon.

I’ll remind everyone that this is an EARLY FORECAST and future blog updates will likely bring changes. Timing of Sunday’s rain and storms, intensity, and rain amounts are still big questions. These will come into better focus as we get closer to the weekend.
