Cooler than normal temperatures will continue to persist throughout the Western Slope. Our morning lows were much colder tomorrow morning thanks to the clear skies. Most of the Western Slope will be in the single digits for this morning. Moab was the only location with double digit morning lows, unless you count the double digit subzero temperatures in Gunnison. High pressure will keep our skies clear as we approach the holiday weekend. Our afternoon highs will be slightly warmer than yesterday’s, but still colder than average. An upper level ridge will set in for the weekend. This will cause our highs to warm up to slightly above average temperatures for Christmas. Early next week we will see another cold front pass through the Western Slope. This cold front will pull in more moisture from the Pacific Northwest and could bring some significant snow totals to not just the higher elevations, but some of the lower valleys as well.
