About two-and-a-half days of dry weather are predicted for Sacramento – just enough time to get in those Easter egg hunts early Sunday morning.

The weather on Friday and Saturday is expected to be sunny before a showery system moves in on Sunday, spreading precipitation across the north state. While Easter morning is predicted to be cloudy, showers are not expected to appear until around noon in Sacramento, according to the National Weather Service.

Rainfall from the weak storm is expected to be light, according to forecasters.

Snow is expected at the higher elevations of the Sierra on Sunday, with the snow level lowering during the night.
