Weather Watch: Temperatures to linger in the 30s on New Year’s Day

If you have exciting plans for New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day, the weather shouldn’t get in your way.

“It’s not real exciting” this week, said Travis Booth, forecaster for the National Weather Service in Grand Junction. A few small snow showers are expected mid-week, but nothing too severe.

Craigites still will want to bundle up on New Year’s Eve with temperatures in the low 10s that evening, but subzero temperatures are not in the forecast. In fact, the weather should be pretty similar to last week.

“It looks like there’s really not a whole lot of change for the temperatures,” Booth said. “We’re going to have a few weak disturbances coming down from the northwest later in Tuesday to Wednesday, but it looks to stay fairly light. You might see some heavy snow in Steamboat, but not in Craig.”

That’s good news for those who plan to hit the slopes in Steamboat on New Year’s Day.

In Craig, the forecast calls for a 30 percent chance of a small snow showers Wednesday morning with the high temperatures remaining in the 30s. And that’s the way it looks for the rest of the week and into next weekend.

Sunny skies should keep things a bright and beautiful Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
