GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) - Monsoon moisture continues to impact the Western Slopes today, with higher elevations still getting showers and thunderstorms. The Grand Valley had partly sunny conditions and has been staying dry throughout the day. Still not ruling out the chance of a few light showers to sprinkles to reach into the lower elevations for tonight. Breezy winds will start moving in, with winds coming as high as 30 mph in the Grand Valley and up to 25 mph for Delta and Montrose. Temperatures are going to fall in the 60s for all three locations.
Tomorrow, there is still a chance of some slight showers and thunderstorms moving through the Western Slope coming from the East. The low-pressure system in New Mexico has been responsible for bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms in from the East into the Western Slope. We will continue to see this pattern of isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms over the next several days, with a higher probability of heading south towards the Montrose area.
