Weekend Rain and Snow

There have been scattered showers across the western slope today. Moving into tomorrow morning, we anticipate the arrival of a new storm from the northwest corner of the state. This storm will bring a mix of rain, snow, and cloud coverage. By 8 AM Sunday, the storm will enter the area and will pick up around lunchtime. At roughly 4 PM, the storm will be directly above head for most on the Western Slope and will persist well into the evening.

Winter Weather Advisory

Several locations have been placed under a winter weather advisory. This effect will remain in place until 5 AM Monday morning. This advisory will affect the Grand Mesa, Battlement Mesa, Elk Mountains, and Sawatch Mountains. Roughly 4-8 inches or up to a foot of snowfall is possible. Road conditions and visibility will be impacted. Caution while traveling is advised.

Grand Junction is not projected to see any snowfall with the incoming storm system. Surrounding areas may see varying snowfall by the end of the day on Sunday. Many of the major Rocky Mountains will also see scattered snowfall throughout the day tomorrow.
