With clear skies overnight, the Western Slope is seeing cool and comfortable temperatures to start out Thursday. Dry westerly winds will cause rain chances in the Grand Valley to completely dry up, and we will only see low chances for mountain showers near the Divide at the end of the afternoon. High temperatures are expected to return to the triple digits this afternoon for parts of the Grand Valley. Hot temperatures like this will continue to stick around for tomorrow and Saturday. In fact, Grand Junction will see a high of 102 for Friday. Major changes in our weather pattern move in at the end of the weekend. An upper level trough will drop our highs 6-7 degrees to our summer time averages, and bring in more chances for afternoon thunderstorms on Sunday. These less hot temperatures, and rain chances will continue into the start of next week. Relief is on the way, and we will only have a few more days of triple digit heat.
