A Flash Flood Watch continues until noon Monday for the I-25 corridor and points west. The greatest threat for flash flooding is over the Waldo Canyon, Black Forest, East Peak, and Royal Gorge burn scars.
Showers and thunderstorms will be likely at times across all of Southern Colorado overnight into Monday morning. Heavy downpours are possible with any shower or storm that moves through the region which may lead to flash flooding in some areas especially in and around our burn scars.
Rainfall totals of 0.50" to 1" are possible around the region over the next 12 hours with some isolated locations possibly receiving up to 2 to 3" of rain through Monday morning.
Most areas will dry out as we go into the afternoon Monday. The middle of the week looks mainly dry for the lower elevations though an isolated shower or storm is possible up over the mountains. The end of the week holds an isolated chance for storms across portions of the Plains.
It'll be much cooler out Monday with highs well below average in the 70s for most spots. Summer-like temperatures will return to Southern Colorado by the middle of the week and look to stick around into next weekend.
