Happy Easter - there is a warm sunny weekend ahead

While Winter garb has been the protocol up until now it appears that the upcoming Easter weekend will be ripe with sunshine and balmy temperatures.

"It doesn't look like the same kind of organized severe weather outbreak that we had the other day", said Jonathan O'Brien, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service's regional forecast office in Mount Holly. I expect a dramatic further greening of the landscape in the coming days.

Cooler weather will move in Thursday.

More than two inches of rain may be in store for the Lehigh Valley over the next few days, soaking the start of Easter weekend and Passover.

Thursday Night: Showers and thunderstorms before 1am, then showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm between 1am and 4am, then a chance of showers after 4am. South wind around 5 miles per hour becoming calm in the evening. Highs in the 60s.

Police said they expected the demonstrations to continue in the next few weeks and promised to take action if necessary. Police have arrested more than 300 people since Monday during protests by the group Extinction Rebellion .

Friday looks to have a shower here and there throughout the first part of the day, and then scattered showers after 2 PM. This means instead of pushing it along it will get caught up in that flow and effectively become stalled.

There will be plenty of April sunshine on Saturday, and again it will be very warm - though it will be a little cooler in the north-east compared to elsewhere.

And when will the warm weather end?

All this rain will certainly keep the landscape exploding with color for the second half of April.
