Detailed Forecast

Tonight:  The chance for rain will taper off as the night goes on, but some of the storms during the evening will still be capable of producing heavy rainfall and any storms that move over burn scars or saturated areas will be capable of producing flash flooding.  Flash Flood Watches stay in effect until 9PM.  Lows will be in the lower to middle 50s for the I-25 corridor, middle to upper 50s for the plains and into the upper 40s and lower 50s for the mountains.

Tomorrow:  It will be mostly cloudy to start you off on Thursday, but another round of thunderstorms is expected to develop during the afternoon.  While the storms will not be as numerous as they have been... they will still be capable of producing heavy rain.  Flash Flooding will be a concern for burn scars and areas that have already received a lot of rain.  Highs will stay cool, only warming into the 60s and 70s.

Extended: Temperatures will gradually warm up and conditions will gradually dry out as we head into the weekend.  Despite this trend, temperatures will still remain well below average for this time of year.
