Your Easter Weekend Travel Forecast
The Easter Bunny is not the only one making the rounds this Easter weekend and before you hop in the car or on a plane here are a few things to expect.
Good Friday looks to be a good travel day for most with a few notable trouble spots to be aware of.
A cold front sliding southward along and east of the Rocky Mountains today will bring snow to the high plain, the Rocky Mountains and the Front Range of Colorado today through Saturday.
Winter storm conditions are expected along the I-25 Corridor south of Denver through Colorado Springs, Pueblo and south to New Mexico. A winter storm warning is in effect for much of south central Colorado through Saturday. Significant snowfall combined with brisk winds could make travel troublesome through early Saturday evening for the Front Range of Colorado. Air travel from the region should be mostly unaffected with a few delays possible due to winter conditions.
Saturday travelers can expect a few showers to the Northwest U.S. with rain changing to snow in the higher elevation of Washington State and Oregon. A cold front moving out of the plains south and east will bring a wintery mix to the Upper Midwest with Wisconsin and Minnesota seeing the biggest impact through Saturday evening. North Florida and South Georgia will see showers and thunderstorms along a focusing stationary front Saturday but these storm should be fairly local along the front.
Easter Sunday should be good for both travel and egg hunts for most of us. The northern Rockies through Idaho and Montana look to see light snow with a wintery mix at lower elevations. Showers and thunderstorms across the Southeast will also threaten your outdoor and travel plans Sunday with severe storms possible. Heavy rain across southern Alabama, Georgia and Florida looks likely for Easter Sunday before midnight making for a soggy day for travel and festivities.
