The warm and fairly dry southwest flow continues across eastern Utah and western Colorado today. Under mostly sunny skies, temperatures at lower elevations will climb into the 90s to lower 100s, with a few record highs possible. A slight increase in moisture from the south will result in a slight chance of afternoon and evening thunderstorms over the SW Colorado mountains and near the Divide. Storms will produce deadly lightning and more wind than rain. Winds increase across the northern parts of the region on Thursday, increasing the fire danger over NW Colorado.
