We're in for something really different this year for Easter. While it's a serious holiday, it's also a time for kids with candy and such. I've been here since 2000 and there's almost always a threat of rain on Easter and worshippers headed to the top of Stone Mountain probably don't think much of us weather folks. In fact, over the past 6 years, there's only been one Easter where it didn't rain - that was in 2003. Of course last year, we had some nasty storms the night before and morning of Easter. This year - we do a 180 and keep the sunny, warm weather that moved in this week right on into the weekend. The only problem you'll have is keeping that chocolate from melting when the kids go hunting for eggs. For the really curious, here's the breakdown of recent Easter weather:

Year Hi Lo Rain
2000 63 47 Trace
2001 76 58 1.15"
2002 73 56 .38"
2003 71 58 none
2004 70 56 .18"
2005 67 60 2.87"
