DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 30 – MAY 4)
On this final day of April 2023 we will be overcast and have a wet Sunday, first impacted by drizzle and lingering showers in association with the remains of a low pressure area that is dissipating just to our south. As this happens, another stronger low will head northward from the Carolinas, its center passing just west of our area tonight, throwing a more solid ribbon of showers and embedded thunderstorms our way, along with a gusty wind. This system will merge with another low in the Great Lakes as it wheels around under an upper low to start the week, and the entire system will then move slowly eastward through the middle of the week. After a mild, breezy Monday, additional unsettled weather comes in with the large, slow-moving system later Tuesday and lingers through the middle of the week, with a cooling trend.
