One more warm day, changes on the way

Today: Another mostly clear start with a light breeze is expected and temperatures will continue to remain above the average for this time of the year. Grand Junction should be in the low 80s and Montrose typically remains in the upper 70s. Afternoon high temperatures will be in the middle and upper 80s for the Grand Valley, middle 80s for Montrose and upper 70s at Gunnison. Afternoon rain clouds are expected over the mountains zones today with some spill over clouds for the valley locations during the late day/evening hours. A slight chance of rain does exist for Montrose during this time.

Extended: Rain chances will be slightly increasing for the valley locations on Friday as former Category 4 Hurricane Odile works through the desert southwest continuing on an eastern jaunt away from Colorado. As a result, moisture will sneak in from the south and a wave of energy passing on Odile’s most northern extension will be enough to shake up the atmosphere for that rain shot Friday afternoon. By Friday Odile will have tracked into the Midwest, Hurricane Polo may form in the Eastern Pacific and an entirely different (west coast low) system will begin tracking toward the Western Slope. This low will likely be a rain maker for the end of this weekend/start of next week.
