Easter Likely To Stay Cool

By From Staff And Wire Reports

Easter may be a little later on the calendar this year, but don’t count on any big warm-up for the weekend festivities.

Forecasters are calling for below normal temperatures and a chance of showers through the weekend.

“We are kind of locked into this storm track,” said John Livingston, meteorologist in charge of the National Weather Service.

Computerized forecast charts are indicating a cool northerly air flow this weekend. The greatest chance of showers will be on Saturday.

Skies are expected to partially clear Sunday, but a risk of showers remains in the forecast.

Highs both days will be in the upper 40s. Morning lows will be in the upper 20s.

The bulk of the clouds and rain off the Pacific Ocean is expected to move into southern Oregon and northern California over the weekend. That will leave the Inland Northwest on the cold, northern side of the storm track, Livingston said.
