Storm could bring snow for weekend

VAIL ” Wednesday’s snowstorm talked a good game, but it didn’t seem to add up to much.

With high winds, heavy snow at times and white-out conditions in places, the storm left only a few inches behind before it was forecast to move out later in the evening.

But more is supposedly on the way, according to meteorologist Jim Daniels at the National Weather Service in Grand Junction.

“There’s a bit of a lull for Thursday as the next system takes shape along the West Coast,” he said. “But we probably won’t see that influence until Friday or Friday night.”

Daniels said the initial flow for the next storm will be from the southwest, favoring the parched San Juans in the southern part of the state. The tail end of the storm should hit the Vail and central mountain areas by Sunday and could deliver a good dose of snow.

Temperatures for the rest of the week will be relatively mild, with highs in the 30s, Daniels said. Into the weekend, things will cool off with overnight lows in the teens.
