URGENT - WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service GRAND JUNCTION CO
250 PM MDT Fri Apr 28 2017

...Another Cold Night Over West-Central Colorado Tonight...

.The sky will clear shortly after sunset and allow temperatures to
plummet again tonight. Clouds will rotate over the Grand Valley
from the east after midnight and prevent widespread freezing
temperatures in the Loma to Grand Junction to Palisade area.
Still, there will be pockets of sub-freezing temperatures in the
traditionally colder areas of the Grand Valley.

The clouds should not move over the Central Gunnison and Uncompahgre
River and North Fork of the Gunnison River valleys, so sub-
freezing temperatures are expected for several hours tonight in
the Paonia to Delta to Montrose area.
