Isolated Showers Possible Today
A relatively weak cold front stretching from east to west is stationed near the I-70 corridor this morning. The moisture with this system is limited, but a few snow showers have developed over the central mountains this morning. The snow and gusty winds will cause travel troubles along I-70 for the remainder of the morning between Vail and Georgetown. As for the Western Slope, isolated showers will be possible through this afternoon, but that activity will likely stay put over the high country. The odds of showers in the Grand Valley are slim, but skies should remain mostly cloudy with highs in the upper 50s.
Starting Thursday, Western Slope temperatures will be near or well above normal for the foreseeable future. Conditions will stay dry until Saturday when a strong wave of moisture supports more high country snow and scattered rain showers in the valleys. This will be a relatively quick system though. By Easter Sunday, conditions will be sunny and quite warm.
Air Quality in Grand Junction as of 6 AM Wednesday is listed as good with a score of 15/500 according to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. Conditions are forecast to remain good on Wednesday.
