June 19th Forecast

Weather

Warm morning lows are expected to stick around in the Western Slope. Afternoon highs will still be 5 – 10 degrees hotter than normal, but we will drop out of the triple digits in Grand Junction. We will have widespread afternoon thunderstorms. These storms will do more harm than help in terms of wildfires. We can expect them to mostly bring in gusty winds, and lightning strikes. We will see a few hundredths of an inch of rain from them, but expect to stay mostly dry. Chances for storms will decease as we head into Sunday, and by the start of next week we can expect to be dry again. The drought will continue with little sign of improving. We may see a few light rain showers start to creep in by next weekend, but it is a little too early to tell.
