Precipitation forecast changes, but freeze warning still in effect
The National Weather Service has downgraded the amount of precipitation expected to fall in the Grand Valley, but a potentially fruit tree-crippling freeze warning remains in effect.
Forecasters with the Grand Junction office originally called for Grand Junction to potentially receive 2 to 4 inches of snow in conjunction with a spring storm that’s hammering other parts of Colorado. Monday night, they reduced the accumulation to 1 to 2 inches. As of this morning, they’re now calling for a 60 percent chance of precipitation but little or no accumulation.
The low overnight in the city is expected to drop to 22 degrees.
