The afternoon is forecast to be in the lower 80s with a mostly cloudy sky. Total rainfall may be anywhere between 1 and 4 inches.
Scattered showers will continue around western Montana this morning, then begin to move out by late morning and afternoon.
Heavier rain will move in Thursday. Another round of light showers, this time exclusively rain, will develop on Wednesday afternoon.
Friday and Saturday look great as we clear out, and stay spring like with our temperatures. A chance of nighttime mixed precip.is possible Friday night into our Saturday with maybe a bit of lingering light snow Saturday morning. Following the front, a dry and slightly cooler Easter weekend appears likely. Meteorologists say temperatures will be warm enough for rain in most areas, but snow is possible in the higher elevations both Sunday night and Monday. Nighttime temperatures will be in the upper 50s to near 60. We'll get through most of Wednesday with dry conditions, but clouds will hang around along with cool temperatures.
EASTER SUNDAY: We're going to keep forecast highs in the 70s but a cold front may sag into the region during the day. Highs Thursday rise into the lower 60s then only fall back to the 50s overnight. Expect a few isolated showers early with lows in the upper 30s and lower 40s.
We had a large snow event over the weekend and all of that snow melt has saturated the ground so much of this rain will have nowhere to go.
FRIDAY: High pressure returns for Good Friday and that means a good day of weather!
The forecast for Opening Day at Comerica Park on Thursday against the Pittsburgh Pirates comes with good and bad news.
