There are very little escape options from these hot and dry conditions.
The region is running between 5-10 degrees hotter than what is typical for this time of the year. Near record highs for a few spots as well. The relief is actually felt during the early morning hours as our low temperatures are close to the norm with clear and mostly calm conditions.
The weather maker responsible for these conditions will be the high pressure system anchored over the Four Corners/Desert Southwest through the mid-term forecast. That will mean hotter temperatures and minimal rain showers through the middle of next week. On the eastern periphery of the previously mentioned high, storms will develop over the High Country. The Divide and to a lesser extent the local mesa and plateaus will experience late day storm clouds. Very little in the way of measurable rain is expected until late next week/weekend. If the high jogs east and a low positions itself off California, then decent tropical source regions could prime the Western Slope for a round of unsettled weather.
