From the National Weather Service Grand Junction office:
High pressure will begin to break down but dry conditions and warm temperatures will continue today. Disturbances in the westerlies will bring mountain snow showers and a chance of valley rain showers Saturday and Sunday. Snow accumulations of 4 to 8 inches will be common for the higher mountains of Colorado over the weekend. A few thunderstorms are also possible both days, along with windy conditions for Sunday. Temperatures will cool Saturday through early next week, but valley locations are expected to stay at seasonal to slightly above seasonal levels.
