Memorial Day weather to watch

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- The National Weather Service in Grand Junction is keeping an eye on a storm that’s headed our way for Memorial Day.

It’ll be a quick one though, so it won’t add to all the moisture we’ve got so far this season. As for all that existing snowpack, the threat of flooding or overflowing rivers won’t be present until next month.

Temperatures haven’t got warm enough overall for runoff to start just yet.

“Then kinda getting into tomorrow night, we’ll be looking at cold air coming in with the system, and so that’s gonna support some snow in the mountains, and we could be looking at several inches on some of the passes. Especially Tuesday night into Tuesday morning,” said Kris Sanders, meteorologist.

As it gets even warmer next month, the weather service will be keeping an eye on the water level in our rivers.
