Scattered Showers and Thunderstorms Possible
Well…….it was hot today. We officially reached 99 degrees at the airport with triple digit heat unofficially throughout the valley today. This was our 24th straight day of 90+ heat in the valley. Skies were clear and winds were light at 5-10 mph. Our skies will remain clear tonight with mild temperatures in the upper 60s.
Monsoonal moisture returns to the Western Slope tomorrow into Thursday. Skies will be partly cloudy and moisture will help trigger showers and thunderstorms in the high country as well as here in the valley. This will continue both Wednesday into Thursday, dropping our highs to the mid 90s.
Skies will clear on Friday and into our weekend, with temperatures rebounding back into the upper 90s with possible triple digit heat once again in the valley. Everyone stay cool out there!
Air Quality in Grand Junction as of 6 PM Tuesday is listed as good with a score of 32/500 according to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. Conditions are forecast to remain good on Wednesday.
