GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) - The work week is ending the same way it started across the Western Slope, with plenty of sunshine and warm temperatures. Mostly clear to clear skies continue overnight tonight with lows falling back into the middle to upper 50s across the Grand Valley. A few more clouds should move in by sunrise on Saturday morning, and then we’ll continue to see partly cloudy skies through the afternoon and into the evening. Rain chances will remain pretty low through the day, but better rain chances move in by the late evening and early overnight hours Saturday night.

Additional stray showers will be possible on Sunday as partly cloudy skies continue to stick around. Sunny skies return to the region on Monday, and it brings our first taste of fall-like temperatures along with it. Highs will barely reach the 70s on Monday afternoon, and then make a better run into the 70s on Tuesday as sunshine continues to stick around. Lows will be in the 40s and 50s as well. This cooler pattern won’t stick around for long, however. Highs return to the lower to middle 80s by the end of next week.
