Tonight: Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to continue through the evening with most of the storm activity dying down around 10 pm. The southern mountain zones could go longer tonight as a wave of energy to our west is expected to pass through the Western Slope, potentially keeping things going later tonight. Storm motion is fast to the northeast, so not expecting any storms to park overhead in any particular area. Regardless, there will be periods of heavy downpours and gusty winds up to 40 mph are to be expected along with cloud to ground lightning.
Tomorrow: A partly cloudy forecast will allow the afternoon heat to return. The Grand Valley will get to the middle 90s, Montrose will feel temps just below the 90 degree mark and at Gunnison, 81°. Another round of rain showers and thunderstorms are expected during the afternoon with the same hazards: frequent lightning, brief and heavy rainfall and gusty wind speeds near 40 mph.
