Weather

Rain showers along the Western Slope with Flood Watches and Warnings in place for a few locations.

There is also another Air Quality Health Advisory in place through Wednesday morning. The bigger focus will be the “when it rains it pours” attitude of our current/extended forecast. Our region will be experiencing increasing showers and thunderstorms due to the placement of the high pressure system. This ridge of high pressure will be wandering to our east by the end of this week. In doing so, the window for sub-tropical moisture/summer thunderstorms will be fairly wide-open for an extended period of time. Expect daily storms developing over the High Country first and drifting over the lower elevations by the end of the day. These storms will produce heavy rain, small hail, lightning and once the soils get saturated, flooding. The flooding threat will be amplified over Burn Scar areas. The first half of each day will feel hot and muggy, while the end of each day will be mostly cloudy, gusty and less hot with any storms that move overhead. After Thursday/Friday the mountains will NOT be the only locations getting rain showers and a subsequent drop in temperatures is also expected.
