Weak system moving eastward today

Today: A partly cloudy to mostly cloudy day will be the forecast with lingering snow showers in the mountains (highs upper 30s/low 40s). Lower mountain valleys (middle 40s) will also hang on to a rain snow mix throughout the day, but drier conditions further west (GJ & Montrose near 50°). Things should feel a bit breezy to the southern mountain zones (low 40s with Cortez at 50°) and temperatures should continue along the warmer than average category.

Extended: The storm system with the tropical origins that pushed a weak round of mild weather across our state will continue eastward and open the door for yet another tropical system for the end of the week. This next system should combine with a colder storm to the north and the possibility is open to a round of winter weather beginning in the mountain Thursday night and continuing through Saturday. All of the Western Slope communities should be experiencing rain or snow and a bullseye for heavy snow is situated over the southern mountains at this time.
