Flash Flood Watch will continue through midnight tonight, but it (so far) does not include the grand Valley or Montrose/Delta.
Amazing temperatures at 4 pm Wednesday September 1, 2021. GJ and Montrose were recording the exact same temperatures (low 60s) as our morning lows. Specifically, GJ was 62F at 4 pm and Montrose was 60F. Those were also the low temperatures this morning! Both locations did achieve warmer temperatures Wednesday into the 70s and both locations have been recording rain as well. There is a 25-30 degree temperature difference between today and yesterday, the end of August and the start of September. There are 21 days until the beginning of the Autumnal Equinox.
Scattered rain showers and thunderstorms are expected to continue Wednesday evening and through the overnight hours. This rain pattern will persist through the Thursday morning hours with mostly cloudy conditions. Thursday late afternoon will begin to clear and the storms appear to dissipate into the evening . Should be a beautiful sunset! Temperatures will jump into the upper 70s and low 80s and slowly warm up through the weekend. Before the end of this long weekend and the start of next week, the afternoon temperatures should be running slightly warmer/hotter than the averages ( middle and upper 80s). A ridge of high pressure will build into the region Friday/this weekend and should eliminate the rain opportunities for the lower elevations.
