Monday’s high ties record of 92
If you felt a little hot under the collar yesterday, you weren’t alone.
Monday’s 92-degree mark tied the May 18, 2006 record high.
Today will be another record heat day if the temperature tops 91 degrees.
In 2006, which was a hot year, the record of 91 degrees was set on May 19. A temperature of 91 degrees on May 17 that year was also a record.
Cooler temperatures in the 70s and 80s with some cloud cover and moisture are forecast for the remainder of the week, said meteorologist Aldis Strautins of the Grand Junction National Weather Service.
According to a 30-year average, temperatures this time of year should be in the mid-70s.
Temperatures are forecast to climb back into the mid-80s by next week, Strautins said.
