A stray shower is possible overnight with variable clouds continuing over Southern Colorado. A cold front will move through the region Sunday morning resulting in a cool and wet day for the area. Highs Sunday will be about 10 degrees below average.
Rain is likely across all of Southern Colorado throughout the day Sunday. Some rain may be heavy at times with most spots picking up an additional inch of rain. With the already saturated ground and swollen creeks and rivers, the potential for flash flooding is high. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect Sunday from 6am until 9pm for the Pikes Peak region which includes the area burn scars. If you live or work or plan on being in an area that's prone to flooding, please be on high alert Sunday.
Now for the good news. Southern Colorado will start to dry out starting Monday. Expect mostly to partly sunny skies and mainly dry conditions Tuesday through Saturday. It'll also be warmer out with highs in the 70s/80s across the lower elevations.
