Tuesday is expected to be sunny, hot and windy. High temperatures will push into the middle and upper 90s for Montrose and Grand Junction. Not as hot as Monday, but with a stronger wind speed and just as dry. Under a Red Flag Warning, the region could achieve wind gusts greater than 30 mph.
Hydrate Hydrate Hydrate!!! The end of this week will have the return of a stronger ridge of high pressure and that will translate into several days of heat that should exceed the triple digits.. looking like several days in a row at this point. If this pattern holds up, this will be the warmest of the season thanks to the amplification of the upper level ridge over our area.
