DENVER (CBS) - Happy Friday! We are watching two storm systems coming together over Colorado for the weekend bringing in a cool down and a chance for afternoon and early evening showers and thunderstorms.

Before the weekend arrives we have a fantastic Friday to look forward to. Southwesterly flow in ahead of our next weather change will deliver a warming trend to end the week. With a few high clouds mixed with sunshine temperatures across the eastern plains will be in the mid 70s to low 80s for Friday.

For the weekend, a pacific cold front and cut-off low from the southwest will merge together bringing a good chance for afternoon storms over the Front Range. Some of these storms will have pockets of heavy rain with thunderstorms on Saturday. Easter Sunday should be partly cloudy with a small chance for isolated late day storms. Easter sunrise is at 6:15 am and should be partly cloudy and near 42 in the Denver area.
