GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) — Another weak system will bring an increase in clouds and wind. This should only be a dry and cool interruption for the Western Slope.

Wednesday was the in-between day for the Western Slope and as such, lots of sunshine. You might want to think about SPF as the sun angle is slowly increasing. Sunsets are now happening around 5:28 pm with a sunrise at 7:25, approximate. There is another weak system that will dive down along the northwest flow (ridge of high pressure to our west nudging everything north to PACNW) and cruise quickly through the Centennial State Thursday. An increase in cloud coverage, breezy afternoon conditions and cooler temperatures will be the biggest impacts for Grand Junction/Montrose. The Front Range will once again benefit from the deeper snow totals with a snow spread of 2-8″ for the Foothills, Boulder, Denver and Colo Springs. If you are travelling through the I-70 corridor in the High Country, expect snow totals 1-6″ along with the usual delays and disruptions. The Grand Mesa (0-1″) and areas further west of the Divide will experience lower snow totals. The sky will clear Thursday night and remain mostly clear, dry and mild through the weekend under the influence of an amplifying ridge of high pressure. In other words. the weekend looks fantastic. Get outside and play before the next round of inclement weather arrives early next week/the beginning of February.
