"Here comes Peter Cottontail...," hopping down the snow white trail?

As the the National Weather Service of Kansas City says, there is a chance we'll see snowflakes on Easter.

The Sunday forecast calls for a 40 percent chance of snow showers before 2 p.m., followed by a slight chance of rain and snow later in the afternoon.

Otherwise, skies are expected to be cloudy with a high temperature of 39.

Any precipitation at all is supposed to be minimal — less than one-tenth of an inch.

"We can't be the only ones already wondering how to make our kids' cute Easter outfits work with a parka, right? Oh and don't be *too* wary of those snowflake icons; not expecting any accumulation in the #KC area," the Kansas City office tweeted Thursday.

Gary Lezak, chief meterologist at Channel 41, called it a possible "Snow Easter."
