We will kick off the long weekend with warmer weather, warmer than we have experienced.
Friday night is mostly clear, mild and quiet. Saturday afternoon will go hotter, windier and also continue to maintain drier than average conditions. There aren’t any record temperatures (next week!) in the immediate forecast, but our next weather maker will pass overhead Saturday creating windy conditions and mountain storms. By Sunday, the forecast highlights that cutoff low pressure system from the southwest as it advances toward the Western Slope. This will lower the temperatures a little bit Sunday and Monday, increase the cloud coverage (both days) and increase the rain chances to slight for Sunday and Monday. If there was any chance of a JUCO World Series delay of game, it would occur late Sunday evening and more so late Monday afternoon. Neither look likely, but the chance of lightning is present with mountain storms moving across the Grand Valley Monday. By Tuesday we recover the temperatures back to warm/hot and advance through next week under a ridge of high pressure that will really heat things up!
