Temperatures tanking with upcoming cold front

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- Meteorologists say a storm that has similar traits to the Bomb Cyclone that hit the state in March, is going to make things colder and wetter this week.

The national weather service says a wind advisory was put in place today, due to the strong gusts.

But the wind is really just a precursor to what is in store for the Grand Valley tomorrow.

A cold front will move in, bringing in high temperatures in the 40's, with potential for freezing the morning of April 11th.

While this kind of temperature shift isn't too unusual for the valley, it can still cause problems.

Matt Peiffer with Avalanche Heating, Cooling and Plumbing says it can impact swamp coolers and cooling systems.

"I'd say most of the calls we've had over the last month, people are anxious and ready to get their cooler going, however, we put them off a little bit and say hey, we can do it, but there's a chance that it could freeze and cause damage to the home," Peiffer said.

Low temperatures could get below freezing during the night time hours.
