Easter weekend forecast: Mix of sun, clouds with low rain chances

Rain ushers in cooler weather islandwide

The weather pattern is finally changing after most of the week stuck in the cloud cover.

Temperatures will remain around average, primarily in the lower-to-mid 50s. Most showers this morning have been in Nebraska, Iowa and Missouri. Sustained winds of 15-25 miles per hour are expected Saturday afternoon, along with gusts of 45-55 miles per hour at times.

Other than a few sprinkles or a light shower, most of the night will be dry. Despite this cold start, today is going to be gorgeous with mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid to upper 60s! You add the exceptionally chilly temperatures to the rain chances that move in with the front, and we are set up for a wet, dreary and colder Easter.

However, it has been a warm front that swept through south-central Montana this morning and continues to warm us up into the early afternoon.

Beginning with Saturday, warm west to southwest winds will push the daytime highs to the low to mid 80s in the south plains, except for northern areas. South winds will be around 5 miles per hour.

A mix of sun and clouds for Easter Sunday.

This is also the time that the pollen is starting to be a factor so if you are allergic to spring trees you can expect to be suffering over the next several weeks. In terms of accumulation, anything from a dusting to upwards of an inch, especially on grassy areas and higher elevations.

Sunrise on Easter Sunday is expected to be partly cloudy with temperatures in the mid 40s.

An approaching and passing cold front will generate a quick rain chance Friday. In fact the best chance is Tuesday and Thursday. With just a few clouds in the sky, Easter should be handsome and flawless for egg hunts for the kids (nevermind for fairways at the Houston Open).
