...FREEZE WATCH IS CANCELLED...

The National Weather Service in Grand Junction has cancelled the
Freeze Watch.

Latest guidance indicates that overnight low temperatures tonight
into Saturday morning will be near or slightly above freezing for
Montrose. The majority of the zone, however, looks to remain above
freezing as enough cloud cover will remain in place to limit
sufficient radiational cooling. Therefore, have cancelled the
Freeze Watch for the Delta and Montrose areas.
