Scattered thunderstorms will stick around in the Western Slope. The heaviest rain will fall over the higher elevations after 2 pm. High temperatures will stay on the cooler side for today and the weekend. The lower valleys will see lighter chances for rain showers during the afternoon, and could see a tenth of an inch of rain. Showers will start to favor the southern parts of the region as we head through the overnight hours. Saturday will be last day of widespread afternoon storms. The valleys will not see much measurable rainfall Saturday on, but whatever showers we see will help for our drought. As we head into the end of the weekend the northern parts of the Western Slope will stay dry with gusty winds, and parts to the south near the San Juans will see light chances for scattered showers. Highs will warm back up to slightly above average as we head into the middle of next week.
