Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are dancing through the high country this evening, but will quickly come to an end after sunset. With an abundance of cloud cover and southerly winds, our overnight lows will stay mild in the upper 40s to lower 50s along I-25 and eastward towards the Plains, 30s and 40s in the mountains.
Getting up early for sunrise services? Looking nice and mild! Temperatures will be in the upper 40s to lower 50s around sunrise with a few clouds passing through. Easter morning looks nice and mild as temperatures will climb into the 60s and clouds will be on the increase.
By Sunday afternoon, isolated thunderstorms and showers will develop in the Pikes Peak region. The rain activity will be confined mostly to Colorado Springs, the Palmer Divide and Northward in Colorado. South of Colorado Springs, there will be an isolated rain shower, but the chances continue to diminish the further south you travel.
