Wednesday will be free and clear of the main plume of tropical rain opportunities. High pressure system is expanding back to the west and should position itself over the Four Corners region through the midweek. That will mean clearer, drier and hotter conditions are in the immediate forecast. The mountains, mesas and plateaus will still be able to recycle storms, but isolated coverage is expected at best and the lower elevations may encounter gusty outflow winds as a result of any storm cells.
By the end of this week, under a ridge of high pressure that will be pushing further to our west, the temperatures will soar to near 100° at Grand Junction and all other areas will be pushing hotter than the average with extremely limited rain chances. If Grand Junction hits the triple digits, it will be the 9th time at or above this year.
