Rain and snow fade tonight through Friday morning
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) - Areas of rain and snow will track from west to east across Western Colorado this evening. Snow will mostly be over the higher terrain, but the valleys will chill enough that rain could change to snow overnight, too. Accumulation in the valleys will be minimal, if any. Most precipitation will end by midnight. Lingering spots of snow can redevelop over the mountains. Locally, that new development is most likely over the Grand Mesa, Battlement Mesa, and the Bookcliffs. The last of that snow will end around or soon after noon.
