Warmup Friday before rain and snow chances return for Easter weekend

DENVER -- Rain and snow that passed over many areas through late Thursday evening will end overnight and the sky will begin to clear.

Not much of a chill, though, as the city will cool to just below freezing for the morning.

Friday will be breezy and warmer in Denver with highs in the low to mid-60s.

Saturday will be cooler with more clouds and a rain and snow shower late in the day. There could be a few snow showers during the overnight hours, especially to the north of Denver.

For Easter, sunrise in Denver is 6:43 am. It will not be picture-perfect morning for some.

Expect mostly cloudy skies, a cold north breeze and temperatures in the 20s for sunrise services.

There could be areas of snow very early in the morning. The chance of snow is higher farther north.

Otherwise, skies should turn partly sunny during the afternoon with highs close to 60 degrees. If the storm system misses to the north, temperatures could reach the upper 60s.

In the mountains, plan on 40s this weekend with a sun-cloud mix and a couple areas of snowfall.

Travel will be pretty good across the state for the weekend, but there might be trouble spots on some mountain roads and for those headed to Wyoming or Nebraska.
