Some scattered thunderstorms will persist into the evening hours but we can expect them to mostly clear up by around midnight tonight.  Friday the upper level ridge above us will shift eastward tomorrow which will reunite us with the monsoon moisture to our south.  This will continue to allow scattered thunderstorms to develop around the higher elevations this afternoon.  Saturday an upper level trough and a cold front will be moving into the area which will add to our rain chances and drop our high temperatures down to slightly below average for the start of next week.  This cold front will not have much of an impact on our low temperatures as they will be resting around the 60s into next week.  Current rainfall deficit is -2.79 inches for Grand Junction and -4.37 inches for Montrose.
