100-Degree Temps Return Next Week.

Valid At 6:00 PM MDT Wednesday, May 9, 2018.

A strong ridge of high pressure is forecast by the models to build over the Desert Southwest and Rocky Mountain Region next week. Thus the jet stream will not be sending any storms our way for the near future. That means hot weather for the area next week.

WPC 7-Day Total Rainfall Forecast.

Not only are triple digit temperatures forecast to return next week but the outlook for any meaningful rainfall locally also looks bleak for the next week. Although it is very dry we have been drier in the past. Take a look at the number of consecutive days in a row without measurable precipitation (less than .01") listed below. And the top 20 driest years on record (with only 1 day of missing data allowed).

And Top 20 Driest Years On Record.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
