Flash flood potential this weekend

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Teller and El Paso Counties today from 3pm until 6pm. This is mainly for areas in and around the Waldo Canyon and Black Forest burn scars.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely today over the mountains and around the Pikes Peak region including the Palmer Divide. Brief heavy rain is possible with any shower or storm today leading to the potential for flash flooding for areas around the burn scars.

Isolated showers and storms are possible elsewhere across Southern Colorado today. It'll be another hot one with highs generally in the 90s. The Southeastern Plains look to top out around 100 this afternoon.

The monsoonal moisture will bring a better chance for showers and storms to Southern Colorado Sunday and Sunday night. A Flash Flood Watch is also in effect for El Paso and Teller Counties once again during this time frame.

Temperatures will fall and rain chances will diminish as we start the new workweek. Expect highs in the 70s for most locations Monday. The middle and end to the workweek look to be mainly dry for now with highs warming back into the 80s/90s.
