According to National Weather Service meteorologist Tom Renwick, monsoons are expected to stay clear of Southwest Colorado for the majority of this week, but that doesn't mean it'll be all clear skies. Rain is most likely after 2 p.m., forecasters say.

For temperatures, look for upper 70s to low 80s in most areas, with Grand Junction remaining the hot spot with mid- to upper 80s and a potential to reach 90 by the middle of the week. A shower or storm could try to sneak into the mix.

Forecast surface weather map for Thursday. South wind 5 to 7 miles per hour.

There's a very slight chance of rain on Wednesday. However, some energy will be sticking around Northeast Kansas and could spark a few more showers later in the day.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy skies and mild temperatures continue, with a low of 67 degrees. We'll see a good chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorms both Saturday and Sunday. Inland communities will have a smaller chance of rain.

There's a 30 percent chance of afternoon and evening rain and thunderstorms.

Wednesday Night: Mostly cloudy - low around 67. 50% chance of rain on Sunday with highs in the upper 80s. Highs today will reach the mid 80s, 10 degrees below normal! Translation? Rain chances will slowly fall *just a tad* by the weekend, but no day on our 7 day forecast is completely dry.

Overnight we will be dropping into the lower 70's for the low. Saturday night rain chances will build, skies become partly cloudy and lows cool to the mid-70s.

Sunday. Partly sunny. Remote afternoon shower/storm chance. Mostly sunny, with a high near 85.
