Weather Watch: Midweek storm to shift to sun by weekend

Craig Daily Press Staff Report

— Easter in Northwest Colorado isn’t a holiday that comes with any guarantees in the weather, but indicators look good for outdoor egg hunts this year.

The National Weather Service forecast for the region this week shows an array of activity, with the grayness of Sunday moving into a clear but cool Monday before warming up to the mid-50s on Tuesday.

Moderate winds in the daylight hours will be a prelude to a chance of rain or snow overnight as a small storm system is expected to bring more precipitation through Wednesday.

Meteorologist Norv Larson, of Grand Junction’s NWS office, said the system won’t be quite as harsh as many of the fronts coming from the Pacific Northwest.

“It’s coming more from the west and northwest, like the one Sunday, but it’ll be sweeping the whole area,” he said.

Activity is expected to taper off by Thursday, with the thermometer reaching back into the 60s by Friday, likely rising a little more by the weekend.

“It’s looking pretty nice there for Sunday,” Larson said.
