All of Southern Colorado should be dry by midnight with skies becoming partly cloudy into Monday morning. Expect morning lows in the 50s/60s.
Labor Day looks to be mainly dry across much of the lower elevations though scattered showers and storms are likely once again up over the high country and Palmer Divide. Temperatures will be warmer with highs in the 80s/90s.
Keep in mind that it only takes one storm to produce flash flooding over one of the area burn scars. And with storms still in the forecast around the Pikes Peak region this week, please stay alert especially if you're going to be around the Waldo Canyon burn scar.
A ridge of high pressure will build in over Colorado for the middle and end of the week resulting in mainly dry conditions for the Front Range and Southeastern Plains. The chance for thunderstorms will stay confined to the high country for much of the week ahead though an isolated storm or two is still possible along and near the mountains. Highs will stay above average through next weekend.
