It was a cloudy but warm start to the weekend with highs in the 60s. Isolated showers and thunderstorms are still in the forecast for Saturday afternoon and evening. Brief heavy periods of rain are possible along the Palmer Divide and the Southern Foothills. A few showers and thunderstorms made their way into the mountains Saturday evening as well. The storms will pass after midnight however the clouds will hang on for Easter Sunday. All is good early for the holiday, starting out partly cloudy, dry, and cool with temperatures in the 40s for Sunrise Services. Highs Easter Sunday will be comfortable, around 70 degrees in Denver.  Another albeit smaller chance of afternoon thunderstorms returns around lunchtime for communities near the Palmer Divide including Castle Rock and Parker, and north into Denver through Fort Collins later in the evening.  Warmer and sunnier weather returns at the beginning of next week.
