Increasing Moisture, Decreasing Temperatures

Today: Showers this afternoon have had less coverage than what we saw yesterday and are slowly moving south around 15mph. The stronger storms contain heavy rainfall, lightning, and wind gusts up to 35mph. A chance remains to see a shower in Grand Junction until midnight tonight. Some storms in the mountains will continue after midnight. Our low temperature will be in the low 60s with partly cloudy skies.

Extended: Storm coverage is expected to increase tomorrow (Tuesday) with monsoon-like flow on the Western Slope. This southwestern flow of tropical moisture will increase thunderstorm activity through Friday with heavy rain possible across Western Colorado. Tomorrow, NW Colorado will have the highest amounts of moisture and the best chance for longer lasting storms. Here in Grand Junction we will have a 30% chance of a storm after noon. Temperatures will stay below average for the next few days due to increased cloud cover. This pattern of afternoon / evening storms will diminish Friday night when high pressure starts to build from the SE. This will dry most areas out by Saturday allowing us to warm back up to average temperatures.
