Monday November 8, 2021 Forecast First


Those clouds outside don’t mean rain, yet.

A stalled cold front to our northwest is the culprit for the added cloud coverage many have been experiencing Monday and again late Tuesday. Once the front gets moving Tuesday afternoon and crosses the Western Slope early Wednesday morning, the weather will be very different. Basically, it’s going to be a quiet Monday night, dry and cool with some clearing possible through Tuesday afternoon. The sun Tuesday could get our afternoon highs slightly warmer than Monday’s. The average afternoon high temperatures in Grand Junction/Montrose are middle 50s. By Tuesday evening, (sunset now around 5:05 pm) there could some light rain showers moving through ahead of the front. Mountain zones will be picking up snow through Friday morning and the lower elevations will be cooler and drier by week’s end. The midweek is our storm and looks like rain! The northern mountains could be measuring total snow 5-15″ by the end of this week, the central mountains 5-10″ and lower amounts further south. The weekend is looking cool and dry with the next round of unsettled weather due Nov 15-20.
