We will see clear skies and hot temperatures on the Western Slope this Labor Day. With the clear skies morning lows will only be around 5 degrees above average in the lower 60s and upper 50s in the Grand Valley. High temperatures on the other hand, will soar 15 degrees above normal in the triple digits in Grand Junction. You won’t have to worry about any rain ruining your BBQ, but make sure you are drinking plenty of water and staying hydrated. We will continue to stay in the 90s and triple digits for the shortened work week. A strong upper-level ridge will continue to lock dry, hot and stable air over the Western Slope for the next few days. This ridge will finally start to break down once we get into the end of the weekend. Once we get to Sunday highs will drop around 10 degrees, and we will be much closer to normal September temperatures for next week.
