I worked all day outside in Delta yesterday, I wasn't exaggerating. Yup had to be 300 degrees at least. Ok it was really 98, but still UGH!

Got .60" of rain last night between 7pm and 10pm here in Ridgway, quite the storm overhead, some flooding. Sunny clear and 46 degrees this morning.

Moisture will continue to be recycled beneath an area of high pressure for daily showers and thunderstorms, mainly over the higher terrain. Isolated storms will be seen over some valley locations as storm boundaries and disturbances interact with remnant moisture. Aside from the few storms that linger past midnight, most will occur during the afternoon and evening hours. Storms will be slow-moving with locally heavy rain, resulting in the possibility of flooding with debris and mud flows in stronger storms. This pattern will remain unchanged for the next several days into the early part of next week. Temperatures will remain at or above normal through the weekend, before cooler air moves in next week.

Isolated valley/scattered mountain thunderstorms are expected into this evening and again for Saturday afternoon. Deeper moisture will work into the region beginning Sunday lasting through early next week. This will allow for an increase in thunderstorm coverage, along with the potential for locally heavy rainfall.

Again it was unofficially over 100 in downtown Pueblo today as I was showing 102. Talk about a hot week and I think the weekend will be just as hot.

Yeah, it's like Momma Gaia is saying I gave you guys some really cool days in August and now you gotta pay the piper to balance things out.

It's been a really crappy summer for tent camping. But thanks to an early summer trip to Oregon and California, I've managed to camp out a total of 16 nites thus far, and only got rained on twice. I would like to spend a few dasy at the ampitheatre campground, but the chance of thunderstorms has been running from 30% to 50% almost daily...all summer long. So I have avoided Ouray like the plague the past 2 months.

Drove some out-of-towns friends down to the Weisbaden Hot Springs in Ouray yesterday. Had to get into the pool to keep from getting wet from the rain!

A Flash Flood Watch continues across Southeast Utah and far Southwest Colorado through Monday evening. Shower and thunderstorm activity will continue to increase this afternoon, with periods of showers and thunderstorms across the entire area through at least Tuesday. Locally heavy rain causing localized flash flooding and debris flows will be the main concern through this period.

Do everything outside in the morning, cause by 1pm it's gonna start thundering and raining.

Default Speaking of Flash Floods and Debris Flows

Here's a YouTube video of such an event, though not in COLO does show what these things are like and how fast they can move. Seems to me that this will roll right over you, rolling you underneath of it.

I was in Greeley yesterday to watch CSU Pueblo play UNC and it was in the upper 90's and it was hot sitting in the stadium. Back in Pueblo it was again above 100, at least unofficially, and I am not sure if it will get above 100 again today but it is already hot.

The good thing with all this rain here, is we're only below normal now in precipitation.
