It’s unusual for us to need our overflow tubes for CoCoRaHS reports!… Pic taken by Mark on 6/27/2022

At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 67 just after 2pm. By evening temps across the area were mostly in the upper 40s to low 50s… brrrr. The low this morning was 50. Humidity yesterday afternoon bottomed out at 51% before the rain started. Winds at the airfield hit 17mph yesterday.
Side note: The Grand Junction radar is expected to be down until 1 Jul for scheduled maintenance. We will rely heavily on satellite during this time.
Precip summary… The county got a good soaking!

The heart of the monsoon plume has been pushed to our south and east. However, there is plenty of residual moisture and instability to kick up scattered showers and thunderstorms.
Wednesday will be the least active day of the week. There will be less moisture and the atmosphere will be a bit more stable. However, we’ve still got a shot at spotty afternoon showers and thunderstorms, especially over the mountains.
The long range models continue to indicate a typical monsoon pattern with a chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorms nearly every day. Some days will be more active than others.
