A progressive trough of low pressure will provide light rain friday night and early saturday morning (mainly east of highway 83). Thereafter an upper level high pressure ridge finally builds into the plains and this will initiate a much awaited warm up just in time for Easter and into early next week! However, southwesterly flow aloft will then develop and this could produce showers and thunderstorms later tuesday into wednesday.
