Scattered rain throughout the day

Today: There could be an early morning chance of rain showers for most valley locations before an expected break from the weather for the middle of Saturday. Breezy conditions will be felt in areas that are not receiving any rain and temperatures, under a mostly cloudy sky, will be running near the norm (mid and upper 60s). The responsible rain makers don't have a lot of cold air, so temperatures should reflect a mild feel with an improvement for Easter. Basically, the southern system will be the rain maker Friday night and Saturday morning and the northern system will be the rain maker for Saturday night. Rain could be experienced into Saturday evening as these systems try to move eastward.

Extended: A few of the weather models are indicating a partly cloudy unsettled day for Easter with improving temperatures. The forecast will not necessarily be dry for all locations until Tuesday. The two weather systems from Friday/Saturday will continue pushing eastward Saturday night and that will keep rain/snow conditions for the mountain zones through Easter night and into the start of the work week. Some of those dark clouds on Sunday could spill onto the lower elevations. The First Warn 8 forecast is going with a drier outlook for the valleys on Easter and more unsettled/continued weather for the mountains. The dry forecast hits by Tuesday and so will the gusty and dusty forecast as another stronger system approaches Wednesday.
