Grand Junction, Colorado

Today we head out to the lovely Rocky Mountains in Colorado! Will the weather cooperate so we can enjoy the beautiful mountain peaks? Let’s take a look!

At 1053pm MDT, the temperature in Grand Junction, CO is 48 degrees under fair skies. An area of pressure intensifying over the Daktoas will further intensify throughout the day on Thursday as it shifts into the Upper Midwest, bringing the first real bout of snow to non-mountainous areas in the Central Plains over the next couple of days. The accompanying cold front is dropping through the Central Rockies throughout the day on Thursday, but any precip associated with it should remain off to the east. As the front pushes further off to the south and east, high pressure drops down over the Rockies, clearing the region out but dropping temperatures as well.
