The chance for rain increases into the workweek

Skies will become mostly clear across all of Southern Colorado overnight. Conditions will be favorable to catch the Perseid meteor shower. The best time to see meteors: 10pm-4am. If you can, look more towards the northeast though meteors should be visible just about anywhere in the sky. You may be able to catch 50 to 100 meteors per hour!

Isolated showers and storms are once again possible for the eastern mountains and the Front Range during the afternoon and evening hours Monday. Temperatures will top out in the 80s for most spots Monday.

The best chance for rain this week will be Tuesday and Wednesday. The flash flood threat will be high for the area burn scars these two days due to the potential for heavy rain. Expect cooler temperatures with the increased chance of rain. Below average highs in the 70s/80s can be expected across most of Southern Colorado Tuesday and Wednesday.

The region will warm up and dry out for the second half of the week. Highs look to be a few degrees above average for this time of year (80s/90s) by the weekend.
