June 22nd Forecast

Weather

The upper level ridge above the Western Slope will strengthen causing overall temperatures to increase. Morning lows will stay cool and comfortable, but they will be a few degrees above normal. Afternoon highs on the other hand will soar to record breaking levels once again. Grand Junction will see another round of triple digits. Skies will stay clear throughout the day, but cloud cover is expected to build up overnight. Chances for dry thunderstorms will return to the high country by Wednesday, and the lower valleys could see a few on Thursday. The best day for rain chances will fall on Friday, but none of these storms will bring much measurable rainfall to the valley floors. The rain chances will cool us down as highs will dip back to the mid 90s by the end of the work week. We will dry up again as we head through the weekend with valley highs returning to the upper 90s by the start of next week.
