Rain Chances Continue

...Another day with showers and thunderstorms although they should not be as widespread as Wednesday...

Moisture is still abundant in the atmosphere.  (You might be able to notice the increase in humidity yesterday and today.)  The moisture will translate to clouds and eventual showers and thunderstorms this afternoon.  The rain will likely develop by late morning over the higher terrain west of I-25 and then spread east.  Because of the abundant moisture, individual thunderstorms could produce heavy downpours and because of this, if any thunderstorm passes over the numerous burn scars in southern Colorado flash flooding could be possible.

The Storm Prediction Center has highlighted extreme eastern Colorado near the Kansas border for the possibility of severe storms later today.  They have included areas along the border in a "Slight Risk" for severe storms through 6am Friday.  The main threat will be damaging wind and large hail.

Winds will also be brisk, especially this afternoon.  Generally speaking, winds should be from the north/northeast at 10-20 mph with gusts over 30mph.
