Sunday calls for warmer temperatures and some precipitation, but how do the other ones stack up?
The warmest Easter occurred on April 18, 1976 when the high hit 83 degrees.
It won’t be that warm this year, highs will be in the lower 60s.
Not bad, but we do have showers and a few thunderstorms in the forecast.
But, at least it’s not snow!
Of the 70 years of records, Fort Wayne has seen measurable snowfall on Easter 6 times.
The highest snowfall totaling 1.6” on April 9, 1950.
Don’t get me wrong, it has rained on the Easter Bunny, many times.
The most rainfall recorded on Easter was 1.21” on April 16, 2006.
Fort Wayne shouldn't see that much rain Sunday.
Rain is expected Sunday morning, then again late Sunday afternoon and evening.
On the bright side, it’ll be warm and it won’t be raining the entire time.
