Changes later tonight

Today: Sunny warm and dry conditions remain for the Western Slope. Grand Junction should see an afternoon high of 74°, Montrose a 73° and Gunnison a 67°

Extended: High pressure will begin to break down later today ahead of an approaching system. Clouds will begin to fill in tonight along with a light breeze in response to an approaching Pacific storm system. Right now this system looks to sweep through quickly for a Sunday night Monday morning event of light to moderate rains in the valleys and snow in the mountain peaks. The system itself looks to drag across the northern portion of Colorado, so our central and northern mountain zones will get this moisture opportunity. By Monday, cooler October air should remain in place longer through next week. This temperature pattern will align our numbers closer to the average for this (that) time of the year.
