Weather Watch: Storm to bring more snow to Craig

Craig Daily Press Staff Report

The Christmas season brought with it lower temperatures and plenty of snow, and for this week, it’s the gift that keeps on giving.

The week will stay cold and snowy to start with for Northwest Colorado, with strong chances for more snow Sunday and Monday brought in by a Pacific Northwest storm system. The result will be much the same as the system that hit Christmas Day, said John Kyle, data acquisition program manager for the National Weather Service Grand Junction office.

“Three or 4 inches of snow wouldn’t be out of the question,” he said.

The humidity will likely taper off by Tuesday, but the chilliness will remain, getting into single digits that day and subzero lows overnight.

The heat will rebound slightly going into Wednesday, and Craig and Moffat County will wake up to a mildly warmer 2015 on Thursday and Friday as the highs climb back into the 20s.

Even at their worst, Kyle said he doesn’t expect the conditions to be anything too severe for the area.

“It’s cold and snow, that’s winter for you,” he said.
