Cold snap to return over Easter with frost and possible snow

A little cool but not bad for Sunday

A little cool but not bad for Sunday

A few mesocyclones that could spawn an isolated tornado or two would also not be out of the question across the region, especially late Wednesday night into mid-morning Thursday. Low: 24. Day: Partly cloudy to partly sunny with a 20 percent chance for snow showers.

The winds on Tuesday will also aid in bumping up temperatures all along the Rocky Mountain Front. Icing would be minimal and will likely cause a very low impact-if any at all.

Tom Renwick, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Grand Junction, said snow is expected to begin falling in elevations above 10,000 feet in Southwest Colorado around midnight Monday. The clouds will hang tough - as rain misses most of our area to the south/east. Expect highs in the 60-65° range - right where they should be for late March. Winds could gust up to 15 miles per hour. Highs for the day will climb a few degrees above average, reaching the middle 50s.

Tomorrow should turn out to be the warmest day of the week with sunny skies in the morning and increasing clouds later in the afternoon.

That said, Pacific Rim Uprising is doing much better overseas as it had a pretty decent opening in China earning over $65 million. It should end its domestic run at $85 million and will need more global money to make back its $100 million budget.

Breezy southerly winds will continue until the frontal system arrives late Wednesday night into Thursday. We could see some rain start to move in overnight Sunday, but for now we're keeping the rain chance off the board through the weekend. Could see a scattered sprinkle during the morning commute with the heavier showers holding off until later on in the day. Monday: Mostly dry, high of 20°C.

Thursday: Milder, a few showers.

The forecast for beach and boating on Tuesday calls for winds to be easterly between 10 and 15 knots, with seas 2 feet. Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s. Otherwise mostly cloudy, with highs in the 70s.
