We will see warm morning lows thanks to a strong upper level ridge above the Western Slope. This ridge will strengthen as we push into the end of the work week. Highs will climb up close to our record highs in the valleys. The lower valleys will see clear sunny skies and the higher elevations will have a 10% chance to see scattered thunderstorms during the afternoon. These scattered storms will mostly just bring in gusty winds. Highs will be in the triple digits and upper 90s for the valleys and lower 90s and upper 80s for the higher elevations. Things will be even hotter on Friday. Grand Junction could break its all time high temperature record of 105. As we head into the weekend things will be less hot. Highs will drop to 5 degrees above normal as opposed to the 10-15 that we will see over the next two days. Drink plenty of water and stay cool.
