GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) - Weather this week is less active than last week, but there’s still some action to watch for the start of the week and the end of the week.

More Snow

Snow will increase across the Western Slope tonight, and it will fall through about midday Tuesday before it gradually fades. It can linger through early Wednesday morning amid the higher elevations.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the Grand Valley from 6 PM Monday until noon Tuesday. This includes Grand Junction, Palisade, Fruita, and surrounding areas. Snow is expected to increase overnight. Accumuation of 2-4 inches is possible. Roads will be slippery and snowpacked on Tuesday morning. Travel may be difficult or even dangerous at times.
