Today: Warm, dry conditions return to the Western Slope this weekend as high pressure begins to build in from the west today. Lingering moisture will allow for some scattered showers in higher elevations this afternoon and tomorrow, but activity will cease by midnight each night. Slight possibility of a quick passing shower in the Valley this afternoon between 3-5 P.M. Highs in the low to mid 70's for most spots.
Extended: Afternoon highs will warm into the 80's throughout the weekend, reaching above normal for some of the warmest temperatures of the year on Monday with highs in the low 90's. This dry, southwesterly flow will continue into the new work week before the high pressure slides out of the forecast area mid next week.
Warning: Runoff warning! With these warmer temperatures, we will see rapid melting of the snowpack, which will elevate rivers, creeks and streams quickly. Take extra care near them, especially with young children and pets.
