Our next 24 hours:

There will be little change in our sky conditions for tonight and getting into our Monday. Clear skies will continue, and temperatures will rise overnight, just like the daytime. In Grand Junction and Montrose, low temperatures will settle in the lower forties and upper thirties. As high pressure will move into the state, expect sunny skies on Monday. Temperatures will continue to get warmer, sitting in the mid to lower seventies for Grand Junction, Delta, and Montrose.

Upcoming Week:

For many locations, Tuesday will be the warmest throughout the week. Places like Grand Junction could see temperatures reach the lower eighties while others hover in the upper to mid-seventies. High pressure will continue to reside, so sunny and clear skies will continue. Some light cloud cover pushes in on Wednesday, and temperatures will drop by a few degrees. But, again, many will continue to reside in the upper to mid-seventies.

Thursday will usher in more cloud cover as the day progresses onward. Temperatures will slowly take a hit and decline as another weather maker will push into the state by Friday. Temperatures will sit around the lower seventies to mid-sixties.

Our Next Weather Maker:

Thursday night will usher in our next weather maker; however, many will continue to stay dry where our mountains can get a few light snow showers. Where the main rain and snowmaker arrives is going to be on Friday. Due to the warm temperatures, valleys will bring rain, while the mountains will receive snowfall. Along with this weather maker will be a cold front that will drop temperatures into the lower sixties and upper fifties. Snowfall total accumulations for the High Country will sit around two to four inches, which can change leading up to Friday.
