The kids will be hunting for Easter eggs, but the rest of us are - finally - not on a hunt for rain. Friday night's storms brought prolific lightning (and thunder!) along with hail in spots. Locally heavy rain, too, with some spots picking up an inch!

The front that brought that rain is now sitting in Missouri and will bring additional rounds of rain into the area Sunday and Monday.

A few showers will be possible Easter morning:

Thunderstorms will start to bubble up in the afternoon, mainly after 2 pm:

Some storms, once again, could produce hail up to the size of quarters, especially near and south of I-80. The higher chances for strong storms and a risk for tornadoes will be along the warm front in central Illinois into Indiana.

That front will once again be the focus for strong storms on Monday in Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri. Portions of the area on the northern edge could see a few isolated strong storms.

We'll have some showers and storms on and off Monday:

Models have seemed to come into more agreement for how this storm comes together Monday into Tuesday. Both the GFS and the Euro have a more progressive storm that will exit early Tuesday, but may contain a wintry mix:

Have a happy Easter and don't forget the rain gear!
