Unsettled for the mountains

Today: A mostly sunny mid-morning is expected with clouds building in during the afternoon hours. Those clouds will coincide with the heat of the day for mountain based showers. You should expect a few dark clouds over the Grand Mesa and Uncompahgre Plateau later with some brief showers in isolated spots. Wind will mainly be the issue as a passing disturbance to our north could make things a little gusty toward the evening. A warm afternoon is expected with very few spots officially recording rain. The Grand Valley should strike the middle and upper 80s, Montrose should also make the middle 80s and Gunnison will be hovering below the 80° mark.

Extended: The minor weather system brushing the northern portion of the state Saturday night and Sunday will likely be a cloud builder, a wind generator and a cool down(er) into Sunday. Slightly less warm temperatures are expected on Sunday, warming on Monday under a mostly clear sky and drying out for the middle of next week.
