80s and small chance of thunderstorms for Monday, June 27th

We got a short reprieve from the heat, but we are back on track to see heat for the first half of the week. The system that brought our cooler weather will move to the east and a new high-pressure regime will take over. That high pressure system will bring our temperatures back to the mid 80s and eventually 90s for the middle of the week.

So, here’s what you can expect for your Monday:

1) Mid 80s for high temperatures

2) Towns near the foothills (Boulder, Golden, etc.) have a small chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening.

3) Gets even warmer on Tuesday.

What you need to know, currently.

In just a few days, a decision in West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency will be made. This decision is crucial in the fight against climate change, as it challenges EPA’s authority to regulate carbon dioxide emissions.

More than a dozen Republican attorneys general are working with two coal companies to limit EPA’s rule-making in regulating power plant emissions and instead, have this power lie in the hands of Congress. If this happens, it will be much harder to hold powerful producers accountable for their pollution and shift the power sector towards clean energy.

To put it plainly, this case has the potential to fundamentally change the Biden Administration’s ability to mitigate the effects of climate change and prevent it all together.
