We will kick off the holiday weekend with similar weather to what we saw yesterday. Overall temperatures will be few degrees warmer, but dry weather will stick around throughout the day. We will start off with clearer skies, but partly to mostly cloudy skies will build up by the end of the afternoon. The lower valleys will be staying dry through the weekend with excellent weather for baseball, and the start of the JUCO world series. A cut off low will develop over the four corners on Saturday. This low will cause rain chances to build up as we move through the weekend, but the lower valleys will not see more than a 30% chance. Whatever rain we do see in the valleys will be extremely light. The higher elevations will see chances for pop up thunderstorms, and more moderate rainfall rates during the afternoon. Most of the rain will be locked to the other side of the Divide. This system is expected to move out at the end of the extended weekend. Another ridge will take its place causing us to see another stretch of sunny skies and dry weather in the Western Slope.
