Happy Good Friday
It’s good Friday, which means that Sunday is Easter. It’s also the last day of school for a week as Douglas County enters spring break. Watch out for kids around the parks next week.
Cloudy, on the ground
For a day when it’s supposed to be rainy, the only cloud is the one pinned to the Valley floor, and that’s burning off pretty quick. There’s supposed to be more coming, with a chance of snow snarling the passes on Sunday. We’ll see how that goes.
Rainy Easter weekend
Today expect a high temperature of 66 and clouds moving in tonight. The low pressure system is moving in slow, so it doesn’t appear like we’ll have a lot of wind this weekend, but we could see about a fifth of an inch of rain on Sunday.
