Weekend Weather Outlook

UPDATED By WeatherBug Meteorologist, John Bateman
Easter Weekend is going to be a relative tranquil one across the U.S., with plenty of sunshine dominating the weather picture.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Bryan Karrick has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook Video.
Quiet conditions will dominate the U.S. weather today. High pressure anchored in Great Lakes and Rockies will product plenty of April sunshine throughout the East, South, Great Lakes, western Plains, Rockies and West Coast.
The biggest trouble will be found from western Texas northeast into Upper Midwest. A weak but elongated front will trigger showers in this corridor, with a few severe storms capable of damaging winds and hail developing across northern Texas, ruining afternoon outdoor plans. Additional evening showers will move onto the immediate Pacific coast and over the northern Rockies.
Today`s temperatures will be very close to the seasonal normal for this time of the year. The warmest readings, generally reaching into the low 80s, will be in Florida, Texas and the Southwest. The rest of the nation`s southern tier from southern California to the Carolinas will be in the 70s, with the Central Plains, Midwest, Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic reaching into the low 60s. The coolest spots will be the northern Rockies and Northeast, where 40s and low 50s will be common.
The generally quiet weather seen today continues through Easter Sunday. Bright spring sunshine will dominate the East, South, Plains and Rockies.
The only weather of note will be found across the southern Plains and along the Pacific Coast. A few p.m. storms will hit western Texas while rain moves off the Pacific into the Northwest and northern California.
Sunday`s temperatures will be very similar to this afternoon`s readings, with 70s and 80s found in a wide west-to-east strip from southern California to the Southeast and Florida, with 40s and low 50s found in the Northern Plains and extreme northern New England. Everywhere else will be in the 60s and low 70s.
