Temperature dips below freezing, but no record

Just when you thought it was safe to fling the windows open and begin spring cleaning in earnest, Mother Nature makes other plans.

The temperature dipped to 28 Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning, according to Travis Booth of the National Weather Service in Grand Junction, putting tender young plants in danger of freezing. It wasn’t a record-breaking low — that was 26 in 1976 — but it was plenty cold.

The low for Wednesday night was forecast to be 33 degrees, Booth said Wednesday afternoon, “and we do have a freeze warning out.”

He said the eastern part of the Grand Valley, which gets more drainage wind, was expected to be warmer than the western areas.
