Would-be campers who are planning to frolic outdoors on Easter weekend should make new plans, according to the meteorologist in charge of the National Weather Service's Salt Lake forecast center.

If anyone decides to head to the wilds and let the bunny hide Easter eggs outdoors in the desert, "you'd better color them," warns William J. Alder. Otherwise they won't show up in the snow.Utah's weather should continue to be unstable for a couple days, with Friday and most of Saturday fairly nice. "But then we have a strong cold front coming in Saturday night and a cold air mass following it into Sunday," he said.

Snow should reach as low as the 4,000-foot elevation. Below that, rain is expected. "The south's going to get some (precipitation) too," so it won't do any good to head to St. George to escape the dreariness.

"The heaviest part of the storm will be in the mountains and the west," Alder said. But eastern Utah will be showery and unsettled.
