Watches and Warnings: A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the NW San Juan Mountains through 8 PM. Heavy and wet snow is expected for this region. Below 9K feet and further to the north (as far as the Roan/Tavaputs Plateau) a Friday night/Sat morning rain/snow mix is expected. A few inches of snow could accumulate for Montrose and less around The Grand Valley by Saturday afternoon.
Today: Similar conditions to Friday with the moisture clearing from west to east through the day. Highs in the low to mid 40s.
Extended: A storm system has been pushing moisture into the four corners region and will bring showers to start the weekend. This is expected to be a heavy and wet snow event for the San Juans and just a rain and rain/snow mix for areas lower in elevation and further north. By Sunday things should begin to dry out. Northwest flow will bring cloud cover to start off the week with the possibility for mountain showers. Temperatures will warm slowly but should remain relatively consistent through the week.
