Big warm-up ahead of Easter storm system

DENVER -- Fantastic Friday Forecast.  Expect sunshine today and highs around 74 across the Front Range.

The mountains stay dry and sunny with highs in the 50s and 60s.

Saturday looks equally as nice except with the addition of wave cloudiness as highs almost reach 80 across the Front Range.

A storm system moves in on Easter.  But, the arrival of rain is slightly delayed, which could result in a dry Easter Sunrise Service at Red Rocks.

I'm forecasting a chance of rain by 10 a.m. then rain likely through the afternoon, night and into Monday morning.  Highs drop to 50 on Easter and into the 40s on Monday.

The mountains can expect 1-4 inches of snow accumulation.  Ski areas will see 2-6 inches of snow.

Drier on Tuesday except in Southern Colorado where rain/snow continues.
