It’s spring, so once again it’s time to start thinking about what the upcoming weekend’s weather might have in store for your outdoor plans.

Here’s your complete forecast for the first weekend of April.

Friday brings chilly temps and rain at night.

It will be cool across the region to close out the work week. A nice sunrise will be followed by an increase in clouds as well as cool temperatures. I don’t expect most areas to get out of the 40s Friday afternoon, but a few spots could nudge the 50-degree mark.

Overnight, showers will move in and leave anywhere from a quarter to as much as a half-inch of rain.

Saturday is the warmest of the weekend.

Any lingering showers quickly exit the area, leaving us with a partly to mostly sunny, very mild day. If skies clear quickly enough, we could reach 70 degrees, but even if the clearing is delayed a little bit, we’ll get well into the 60s. I don’t expect field games to be cancelled, as the rain should end early enough.

Sunday’s cool conditions along the coast are courtesy of a sea breeze.

Sunday brings another nice day with plenty of sunshine along with a blend of clouds. It won’t be quite as mild as Saturday, but readings will still get into the 60s inland, making for a spectacular spring day that’s good for outdoor activities. A sea breeze will keep temperatures in the 50s along the coast.
