High temperatures will be running 5-10 degrees hotter than is typical for this time of the year. Mountain storms will fire up again Tuesday afternoon, but the coverage may be a bit thinner than the previous two nights across the Western Slope. Midweek period brings a break from the stronger wind speeds and the passing showers and thunderstorms, but NOT the hot temperatures.
The late week/weekend weather pattern looks to support more storm coverage along with less hot temperatures. The heat maker (ridge of high pressure) will have moved east a bit and along with a low pressure system parking itself off the California coast, these two features will work in together to push in storms through the weekend, perhaps longer.
