Watches and Warnings: The National Weather Service has issued many watches and warnings that continue through Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday morning. In addition to Avalanche Warnings, a Winter Storm Warning has been issued for the San Juan Mountains, Grand and Battlement Mesas, West Elk Mountains, Sawatch Mountains, and the Uncompahgre Plateau. A Blizzard warning is in effect for the western San Juans. Heavy, blowing snow is expecting, and travel will be difficult if not impossible.

Tonight: Rain and snow will continue overnight with the possibility for severe storms. As temperatures drop, snow levels will also be lower, bringing snow to the Grand Valley. Overcast skies will keep temperatures mild and lows will be in the 30s.

Tomorrow: The morning will begin with rain/snow then start to clear out from north to south through the day. Temperatures will be cooler with highs in the 40s.

Extended: A low pressure jet will start pulling cold air in from the north as moisture is pulled up from the south. This will cause temperatures to drop to the 30s by Wednesday. The system will move east Tuesday afternoon, and skies will be clearer by Wednesday morning. High pressure takes over into the end of the week, bringing more sunshine to the Western Slope. Temeratures will warm back to normal by Friday.
