Easter Climatology for Eastern Utah and Western Colorado



*Please note that all data mentioned is collected from our automated observing stations from 10 different airports across eastern Utah and western Colorado.*


The Spring season tends to be a wild ride most of the time with a mix of everything from snow to rain and hot to cold. That is evident in our Eastern Climatology where some years have brought nearly 90-degree temperatures and others have ended with over 8 inches of snow!


This year Easter falls on Sunday, April 21st. The ridge of high pressure that will be in place through Saturday will have shifted east of our area by Sunday with a Pacific disturbance set to move across eastern Utah and western Colorado throughout the day. This could result in cooler temperatures with increased clouds and the chance for showers. Be sure to stay up to date with the latest forecast by visiting our point and click weather forecast at!
