Easter Sunday will deliver a diverse mix of weather across the nation, including rain, thunderstorms, snow and sunshine.
Rain will extend from the Northeast down through the South and will push eastward throughout the day. Thunderstorms will span parts of Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi and Alabama.
The north-central U.S. will feel cold air moving in from Canada with the potential for snow in Montana, North and South Dakota and Nebraska. Brisk winds will add a chill to the day.
Neighboring states to the west will remain relatively mild.
Rain for much of the day in California, Nevada, Utah and part of Colorado may hamper outdoor Easter festivities but will supply beneficial moisture.
