Drier air will chase away thunderheads


This pattern of hot days with thunderheads forming in the afternoon, followed by rain and light displays, could be coming to an end.

Aldis Strautins, a metrologist with the National Weather Service, said the moisture that has been mugging the Grand Valley for the past week should be pushed eastward by midweek.

An upper level trough passing over the northern Rockies early this week will put Mesa County under a westerly flow of warm, dry air, he said.

Slow-moving clouds that provided some mild relief from the heat of the past few days will evaporate by Wednesday, heading into Thursday. Temperatures all week are forecast to be in the mid to upper 90 degree range. The end of the week, through the weekend, looks like it will be the hottest part of the week, Strautins said.
