CRAIG — A cold air mass moved into Northwest Colorado rapidly on Saturday, bringing snow Saturday and Sunday and cold temperatures that are expected to continue into the week.

Light to moderate snowfall will continue over the mountains along the Continental Divide, bringing 1 to 3 inches, with locally higher amounts above 9,000 feet, according to the National Weather Service in Grand Junction.

Forecasters predict freezing temperatures are likely again Sunday night, with record cold possible.

Looking at the extended forecast for Monday through Saturday, additional light snowfall is possible off and on through much of the week in the higher mountain areas beginning Tuesday evening.
