Indian summer to continue

— The region will continue to experience an Indian summer through next week, with mostly clear skies and above-normal temperatures.

“Pretty much dry and mild,” said Matt Aleksa, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Grand Junction.

Some high clouds and wind entered the region Friday as a weak wave passed to the north. Another weak wave is expected Sunday and Sunday night, which is expected to result in similar weather conditions.

“Otherwise, warm and dry weather will grace our area through the most of the next work week,” said Steamboat-based meteorologist Mike Weissbluth, who runs

Low overnight temperatures and high daytime temperatures were both expected to be above average, with high temperatures in the 70s, five to 10 degrees above average.

A change in the weather is expected by next weekend due to a low-pressure system that brought some rain and clouds to the region earlier this week.

“It’s the same storm system that’s going to affect the region again,” Aleksa said.

The impacts of two storms in the Pacific and Baja should become more clear next week.

“But it appears these two systems may threaten our warm, sunny and gorgeous weather by the end of the work week and for the following weekend,” Weissbluth said.
