The best times to get out of the house as the weather worsens this weekend in Denver

If only this week’s work day weather would’ve taken place this weekend.

After three consecutive sun-splashed, 65-degree-plus days, cloudier and more unsettled weather will return for the weekend. That’ll put a dent into your (socially distant) outdoor plans, especially on Easter Sunday.

But, there should be at least a few windows to sneak outside to walk the dog, go for a jog or just sit outside.

Reminder: Maintain at least six feet of distance between yourself and others. Avoid touching anything, and wash your hands thoroughly as soon as you return from your exercise. Also, if possible, try and avoid big pedestrian areas like Washington Park or Sloan’s Lake.

There are indications that, particularly if you are a runner or jogger, that six-foot distance should be increased to a minimum of 10 feet.


There’s no doubt Saturday’s the day to get your outdoor exercise, although you may want to avoid traditional parks and running trails because of additional crowds. Rain chances will increase as Saturday wears on, so if you’re hoping to ensure that you’ll stay dry, go early rather than late.

7 a.m.: 48 degrees, a few clouds.

10 a.m.: 57 degrees, partly sunny.

1 p.m.: 63 degrees, mostly cloudy. Chance for a shower, though it’ll probably stay dry.

4 p.m.: 66 degrees, mostly cloudy. Chance for a shower.

7 p.m.: 61 degrees, cloudy with showers possible. Rain chances will increase as day turns to night.


You can just about write off any sort of prolonged outdoor activities on Easter Sunday. Even a stroll will require a heavy winter jacket. Temperatures will fall as the day wears on, and gusty winds will be the final kicker on this overall nasty Sunday.

And that (outdoor) Easter egg hunt? Well, maybe next year.

7 a.m.: 32 degrees, light snow. Winds gusting up to 25 mph.

10 a.m.: 30 degrees, light snow. Winds gusting 30-35 mph.

1 p.m.: 28 degrees, light snow. Winds gusting 30-35 mph.

4 p.m.: 26 degrees, a few flurries. Winds gusting up to 30 mph.

7 p.m.: 25 degrees, flurries. Winds gusting 25-30 mph.

Looking beyond the weekend, Monday and Tuesday are also looking unsettled with a mix of rain and snow showers with highs stuck in the upper 30s to low 40s.

Temperatures should gradually moderate later in the week, but there’ll be another chance for rain and snow on Wednesday and Thursday. It doesn’t look like any sort of prolonged mild and dry weather is in the offing in the foreseeable future.
