Public Information Statement
National Weather Service Grand Junction CO
246 PM MDT Sun Apr 8 2018

Rain, snow, and hail were all reported to the National Weather
Service Office in Grand Junction in the wake of a widespread,
moist distrubance that began affecting our area at the end of
last week with lingering showers ongoing still this afternoon.
The start of the system brought mostly rainfall with some
embedded convection and even small hail today to some areas
of western Colorado and eastern Utah.  Precipitation was
predominately snow above 11,000 feet but snow levels lowered
to around 8,000 feet last night with the passing of a cold
front bringing some snow to a few lower elevations as well.
The following are 24 hour precipitation reports observed at
