Detailed Forecast

Tonight:  There will be a few lingering showers across mainly the high country but for most, we'll track partly cloudy skies and mild temperatures with lows in the upper 50s and lower 60s for the I-25 corridor and plains, 40s to lower 50s for the mountains.

Tomorrow:  Morning sunshine will make way for afternoon storms.  It looks like we'll have a tad more water to work with in the atmosphere, which means storms will be more likely in the afternoon.  The majority of the activity should stay north and west of our area, but we can't rule out a few scattered storms along the interstate.  That being said, any storms over and near the burn scars will create concern with regards to flash flooding.  It will be hot again, with high temperatures warming into the 90s across the lower elevations with 70s across the mountains.

Extended:  Noticeably cooler air will arrive this weekend.  Highs will drop into the lower to mid 80s.  Along with the cooler air we'll see higher storm chances.  Sunday and Tuesday look to be the most active days, with severe weather 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.
