Joe Nicholls/NOAA Forecast for Tuesday, April 17, 2018

Joe Nicholls

The cold front is just to the west of Craig at 7 am, and will move slowly eastward reaching us around noon or in the early afternoon. I saw the winds increased thru the afternoon yesterday and the gradients are tighter today, so windy and turning cooler with showers and a chance of a thunderstorm, then some snow! The next system moving into the West will bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms on Friday, decreasing on Saturday with a nice weather day on Sunday.
