It will be a clear night tonight across the Western Slope. Our morning lows will be around 3 degrees below average. Lingering moisture in the lower atmosphere should keep our lows from falling too much during the overnight hours despite the clear skies. Clear skies will be sticking around for the afternoon hours and our highs will be right about average for this time of year in the lower 80s, and 70s. Expect above average temperatures for next week as the warming trend will continue for the next few days.
The next big chance for rain will come in the form of an upper-level trough that will start to break down the ridge above us on Friday. At the moment the only locations that will likely see rain fall are the San Juan Mountains. For us on the Western Slope we will likely just see some gusty winds and potential fire weather conditions. We will continue to keep an eye on the system for potential changes moving forward.
