Easter weather looks all right

Not a bad idea to have an umbrella today as some scattered showers, perhaps a few storms, look possible. After a few morning showers linger early Wednesday, much of the day may end up largely rain-free. Another round of steadier showers arrives Thursday afternoon and evening. Ice, sleet, and snow accumulation will be light, so impacts will be minor but there may be some icy spots.

Easter traffic is expected to peak on Thursday and Friday with Scots warned to brace themselves for a wet and windy weekend. Easter weekend looks quite warm, as well.

Thursday and most of Friday will feature a little quieter weather, but more and snow will scatter across the area Friday night. Nighttime temperatures will be in the upper 50s to near 60.

As temperatures rise, the already high running creeks and streams will likely see some minor flooding.

EASTER SUNDAY: Partly/mostly cloudy with the chance for a late-day shower.

Neil Walker is likely to start at first base in Thursday's Opening Day fixture against Toronto Blue Jays. We feel good about it. "He did say he's had some discomfort a little bit off and on", Cashman said.

This year, outlooks suggest we may have an average high of just 52 degrees through the first 10 days of April, with an average (overnight) low around 32 degrees. Highs on Sunday will be in the low 50s in Denver and in the 40s in the mountains. High temperatures will be slightly cooler behind Tuesday night's front. It will be blustery with winds out of the southwest around 15-20 miles per hour this afternoon. The heaviest of the rain has shifted southeast but not before leaving over three inches in spots.

Today was a pleasant day in the Tri-Cities and tonight temperatures will be seasonable in the upper 30s and low 40s.

Good Friday looks to be handsome with highs in the cooler side throughout the day.

Saturday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 48.

Monday and Tuesday in the Omaha area are forecast to be mostly to partly sunny with highs in the low 50s.
