Bleak ... Just Bleak

"Radar shows a patch of rain with some embedded thunderstorms will move through the Chicago area Friday night, with clouds remaining into Saturday morning.

There a chance at a few peeks of the sun Saturday, and Tribune/WGN meteorologist Tom Skilling says it will be welcome -- but temporary.

It rained 14 of April's first 21 days, he said, and April's sunshine performance has been dismal. With only 34 percent of its possible sun on the books, April 2011 is tied with 1953 as the cloudiest April on the books here.

At least two additional wet storms are in line to visit the Midwest before the month ends."

  1. It's been a very cloudy april here too. And I don't think it would be so bad if we didn't have such a cold and miserable winter. It's probably going to go straight from cloudy and rainy to hot and humid this year, which is such a big fat bummer.
