Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, April 18, 2019 at 6:22PM

Showers Return Tonight; Turbulent Friday

Today was the last quiet day until Monday so we hope you got an opportunity to enjoy it. A slow moving and dynamic storm system impacts the region beginning late tonight until Sunday morning. Showers develop overnight and showers and storms are with us through the daytime Friday. Rain could be heavy at times. Saturday is quite chilly and showery. Much colder air aloft Saturday contributes to a mix of rain and snow showers Saturday afternoon and night. Snow showers will favor the highest elevations. Easter Sunday has morning clouds and a lingering rain/snow mix. The afternoon is brighter and not as chilly as Saturday, but still on the cool side.

Forecast Discussion

There's no way to sugarcoat the Easter weekend forecast. It ain't pretty, but we'll take it in stride.

A cold front moves through from the west Friday. Showers develop overnight and showers and storms are with us pretty much all day tomorrow. Rain could be heavy at times. Friday is notably cooler with the rain and clouds.

Colder air envelops the region Saturday as a lumbering upper level low moves overhead. The best way to describe Saturday is "showery" and chilly. These upper lows in April are awfully tricky and typically pack a surprise or two. In our case it will be snow showers. High elevations snow showers and wet flakes in the valleys mix-in Saturday afternoon into Saturday night. Under the cloak of darkness some minor accumulations are certainly possible, mainly on the ridgetops.

The upper low is slow to depart Sunday and we'll contend with lingering morning clouds and a rain/snow mix early on. I'm optimistic for a brighter afternoon (still cool). Any further slowdowns and that will be in jeopardy.

Spring warmth returns quickly Monday and the first half of next week looks very nice.
