Some showers have already developed overnight due to the increase in monsoon moisture. Light rain has been recorded in Montrose shortly before 4am. Though most of this is light rain there are some pockets of moderate rain too. These showers are moving north so i will anticipate some light rain over the grand valley around daybreak. Then it looks like we will see a bit of lull around the late morning to mid-afternoon. Cloudy skies will keep are temperatures about 10 degrees cooler than yesterday with highs only projected in the 70's and 80's.
With the added cloud cover comes a diminishing threat of strong storms. Although some isolated storms may still produce flooding rains over localized areas so it's important to be aware of that. Storms will be moving at 15-25 mph to the north-northeast. Overnight rain is very likely and will at times be heavy. I expect another round of accumulating rain for the valleys after 6pm until after midnight.
There is still some disagreement on what the upper level low will do towards the end of the week so i have trended a little drier for our Thursday and Friday. Warmer temperatures look set to return for our weekend with highs near normal. We will still be under a somewhat moist flow which will lead to showers and storms each afternoon over the higher terrain and also bring us partly cloudy skies during the afternoons in the valleys.
