SUNNY WEATHER PREDICTED FOR EASTER WEEKEND.
PALMDALE - Antelope Valley skies are predicted to be mostly sunny for egg hunts Saturday and Easter services Sunday.
Rain is possible today, the National Weather Service said, but a high- pressure ridge expected to settle off the coast will make Easter weekend dry and warmer.
For today, the Weather Service forecast a 50 percent chance of showers, afternoon temperatures in the 40s and 50s, and west winds at 20 to 25 mph in the valley.
The chance of rain is to decrease to 30 percent tonight, then disappear Friday.
Afternoon temperatures should be in the 50s to mid-60s Saturday and climb into the lower 70s Sunday.
The high-pressure ridge is expected to break down on Monday, allowing in a weak cold front with enough moisture to warrant at least a small chance of rain, cooler temperatures and gusty winds Monday night and Tuesday, the Weather Service said.
Tuesday's storm dropped .33 inches of rain on Palmdale, according to National Weather Service measurements taken at U.S. Air Force Plant 42.
The latest rain brought Palmdale's total rainfall since July 1 to 15.55 inches, or sixth on the list of wettest rainfall seasons since Palmdale weather records began in 1931, according to weather service records.
Palmdale's wettest season was 1940-41, with 18.41 inches.
