5:00 Mountain time this afternoon - Grand Junction temperature 97, dewpoint -5. 102 degrees difference. Delta also not to shabby at 98 degree difference. Is this a record or close to it? Seems like huge difference. Regardless, no rain happening today.

Not sure if it is a record for those locations (it probably is). Las Vegas back in late June in 2011 did register a 107 over -21 (which I think was a record for them at the time).
