The next storm system will drop into northern portions of eastern

Eagle River Valleys. Winter driving conditions can be expected

to snow and icy conditions.


Spotter activation is not expected today or tonight, however
spotters are encouraged to report snowfall amounts to the
National Weather Service in Grand Junction.
