    A bright forecast is in the cards for Easter Sunday, with the exception of a stray shower in the morning.

    Skies will average mostly sunny to partly cloudy, with highs reaching into the lower 80s in the afternoon. The shower coverage might be a bit more than Saturday with most areas having the best chance of rain later morning and early afternoon before drying out later in the day.

    Breezy conditions will stay in place for a few more days too, keeping the rip current risk elevated through Monday, with easterly winds gusting up to 25 mph. A small craft advisory has also been issued for boaters until 2p.m.

    At this point, next week is trending a touch warmer and more humid. Thunderstorm chances will enter the forecast by Thursday.
