Detailed Forecast

Today:  The threat of showers and thunderstorms remains and with ample amounts of moisture to work with the storms have the potential to produce heavy rainfall.  Some of the storms will even be on the strong side.  A bit off a cool down to kick off your work week.  Temperatures are only expected to reach the upper 70s and lower 80s for the plains and the I-25 corridor.  Mountain locations will struggle to reach 70 degrees. 

Tonight:  Showers and thunderstorms are expected to continue through the evening, with some of them again producing heavy rainfall.  The storms are expected to diminish before midnight.  Lows will once again cool to the lower to middle 60s for the plains and into to the low 50s for the mountains.

Extended:  The good chances for rain take us into the early part of this week, before tapering off.  The reason for the high chances for rain is a front that will be sitting over eastern Colorado early in the period, giving us plenty of instability and combining with monsoonal moisture to produce heavy rains.  With the extra clouds, temperatures will be noticeably cooler.   Highs will drop into the middle to upper 70s.  Tuesday night/Wednesday will be the most active day of the next three for severe weather, with strong storms possible over the plains.  If we get enough rain over the burn scars, flash flooding will be a concern that we'll have to monitor closely.  The weather calms down and warms up (slightly at least) later in the week.
