We could be waking up to a white Easter morning along the Front Range.A weak weather disturbance will bring the possibility of some light snow to the Denver area, along the foothills and the Palmer Divide Saturday afternoon and Saturday evening. Snow amounts are expected to be light. Temperatures will be in the lower 20s for Easter Sunrise Services at Red Rocks. Sunrise on Easter morning happens at 6:57 a.m.
The weather system and associated cold front will drop through the area Saturday afternoon. A weak upslope flow behind the front will bring colder temperatures and some moisture into the northeast plains and urban corridor through early Easter morning.Snowfall totals of generally less than one inch are expected across the region. The wind flow will turn south by Easter morning, drying the atmosphere.Ski conditions in the Colorado Mountains are excellent this weekend. Anywhere from two to six inches of fresh powder has been reported at most resorts. The new snow, combined with above-average snowfall for the month will guarantee a fun weekend for skiers. Only light scattered snow showers are expected this afternoon and tonight in the mountains.Easter morning will start off with chilly temperatures and some clouds, but as the day progresses, skies will clear and temperatures will climb to near 50 degrees. A high pressure ridge will move in Sunday and Monday, bringing sunshine and warmer temperatures through mid-week.By Thursday, a weak pressure trough will cool temperatures back into the 40s, but the overall weather pattern should remain dry into next weekend.
