We are waking up to cool and comfortable temperatures on the Western Slope to start our week. Morning lows are in the mid 60s for the Grand Valley, and we are seeing 50s over the higher elevations. Yesterday’s rain will cause high temperatures to be much cooler than last week, and highs will mostly be in the 80s for today. Moist southwesterly flow will spur chances for pop up thunderstorms through the afternoon and evening hours today. A pocket of dry air will keep the northern parts of the region dry, but Montrose will still see a 40% chance for a scattered rain shower this afternoon. Storm chances will clear up by midnight tonight. Due to the North American monsoon pattern we will continue to see dry morning, and scattered thunderstorms for the afternoon hours everyday this week. Highest rain chances fall on Thursday.
