We've been really lucky so far, in Santa Fe. Normally it would be in the 80's, but the cool May weather has stretched into June (miraculously!), and we've been getting a little bit of rain. Not enough to even wet the ground, but it's keeping things cool. I count my blessings.

You can definitely cross off the likes of Grand Junction, Fruita, Palisade, Delta, & Montrose, and probably Paonia, Crawford, & Hotchkiss.

I think Denver gets over 100 at least twice a year too......

Wink High Country in summer (or just 365)

Per 100 degree days in Colorado, if the criteria is no more than one or two such days in a year—basically exclude all that is not in the mountains.

Denver and environs regularly (at least of late) see multiple days of 100 degrees plus. That goes as well for the eastern plains and a good portion of the West Slope. And even if some area may not technically reach 100º, one can count on all the lower elevations being customarily in the high 80's, if not 90's and pushing 100º.

How many tourists from Texas flock to Lamar? No, like anyone else they sensibly head to the high country.

It looks like a heat wave over the desert southwest is developing that could bring triple digit heat to Pueblo the next 5 days. As you guys know I like the heat so I am looking forward to it.

Pueblo did get rain and hail yesterday. 3 storms developed over Cheyenne mountain and moved south east over the city and eastern suburbs. It's called the train effect. It was quite interesting as I can't remember storms coming from Cheyenne mountain like that before.

It's supposed to be 103 in Delta today. Thankfully I'm in Ridgway where it's only supposed to be 89. Still that's way too hot for my taste. Nights are near 50, which is good.

Red Flag Warning for southwest Colorado Monday afternoon and early evening, with a Red Flag Warning expanding to include portions of central Colorado Tuesday from 10 am to 8 pm. A dry southwest flow will develop for the coming week bringing very warm temperatures (near record highs today) and windy afternoons leading to fire weather concerns. Isolated mountain thunderstorms are possible on Monday afternoon, while the remainder of the week is expected to be dry

I've been in Ashland Oregon the past 5 days. High temp flirting with 90. Not too bad. The next 5 days have forecasted highs in the upper 70s. WooHoo! Delightful climate here. Still quite dry, but 20 inches of annual precip makes the countryside look so green compared to most of Colorado. As much as I enjoy the desert known as Colorado, it's nice to have a break from it. The Oregon green is a wonderful healing experience. I'm luvin it!

Hmmm....is Oregon green a code for a strain of MMJ? Inquiring minds...that sort of thing....

@Mike....I wouldn't be surprised if it was, but I was referring to the green landscape. More than anything else about my comparison of Oregon and Colorado is the relative greenness of Oregon.

I gotta say ... I was all over Colorado this past weekend and it is really really green at the moment!

Unlike a couple of weeks ago.
