Look outside, and it’s hard to believe we’re going to turn the calendar page to May over the weekend. The weather outside is cold and raw and more suited to early March or even late fall.

Meteorologist Vince Condella from FOX 6 Now is predicting rain and high temperatures Thursday of only 41.

“iI we had a misery index for weather, (Thursday) might be off the charts….especially considering it is late April. A raw northeast-east wind will combine with occasional rain showers to produce a chilly day,” he wrote on the news station’s Facebook page.

Weather conditions do improve in time for the weekend, though. The forecast lists highs in the mid- to upper-50s – closer to high 40s near the lake – with a mix of sun and clouds. There is a slight risk of rain Saturday night.
