We are seeing clearer skies to start the day on the Western Slope. With the clearer skies morning lows are a little bit cooler than yesterday. Skies look to stay clear for the morning, but partly cloudy skies will move in for the afternoon hours. Highs will be similar to yesterday, and a few degrees below our records. 90s once again will be a possibility for parts of the Grand Valley, and most of the Western Slope will be in the 80s. We will see chances for pop up thunderstorms over the mountain tops this afternoon. There will be higher chances for these pop up storms over the Book Cliffs and a little further northward. The lower valleys will once again stay dry. These mountain showers will cool us down around 5 degrees for Wednesday, and high pressure will dry up most of the rain chances. As we look to Thursday we will see a cold front move towards the Western Slope. Thanks to this front Thursday will be the gustiest day of the week. With the dry strong winds ahead of the front we will have multiple fire weather concerns for Thursday. The best chance to see rain all week will be Friday as this front will drop highs all the way down to the 60s in the Grand Valley.
