Brad Miller’s First Warn Forecast

Updated: 14 hours ago

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) - If it hasn’t been hot enough for you lately, we have exactly what you’re looking for over the next several days. Record heat will be a big part of the weather story over the next several days, with temperatures potentially pushing into the record books this weekend and well into next week. Highs will top out in the mid to upper 90s, with triple digit heat likely in the Grand Valley both days of the weekend. Right now we’re forecasting at least six straight days of either record-tying or record-breaking heat this weekend and into next week. Along with the heat, we’ll remain extremely dry, with relative humidity values into the single digits over the next several days. We do have one bit of good news - winds will not be quite as strong over the next few days, which is certainly good news for firefighters battling the Pine Gulch and Grizzly Creek fires. However, it will be just as hot and dry as it has been, meaning that fires will still be very difficult to fight over the next several days.
