Sunday: Another late winter storm is here. After another bout of afternoon showers and a few thunderstorms yesterday, a strong storm moved from the Great Basin into the Central Rockies overnight. Widespread rain showers are expected, with snowfall developing over the highest peaks. Snow is accumulating above 10,000 feet, especially over the western San Juan Mountains, the West Elk Mountains and the Grand Mesa. In Grand Junction high will be about 56 with a 70% chance of showers and thunderstorms. Montrose can expect the high to be about 52 with a 70% chance of showers and thunderstorms possible.
Extended: These conditions should continue throughout Sunday and into Monday morning, causing slushy driving conditions over the high mountain passes of southwest and central Colorado. A ridge of high pressure will fill in next week taking us back into the 70's.
