FLASH FLOOD WATCH in effect from now through Wednesday. The National Weather Service extended this watch as more widespread showers and t-storms are expected later today. These will continue overnight and through Wednesday. With already saturated soil, the heavier rain will likely cause some flash flooding. Be on the lookout for quickly rising creeks, streams and storm drains as well as flooded roadways.
We'll start to see the showers develop soon in the higher elevations. These will move east into the I-25 corridor later today and continue through tonight and Wednesday. Temperatures are once again going to be on the cooler side. We'll see highs in the mid-70s for Springs, and near 80 for Pueblo.
We still have the moisture coming in from the southwest and cooler air to the northeast. Tonight, a small disturbance will move through, creating the widespread showers/storms. This could leave for a messy morning commute Wednesday. It will also bring with it much cooler temperatures. Where highs Wednesday will stay in the mid-60s and low 70s for Pueblo. So basically, because of the clouds and showers, we won't climb much from the overnight low.
For Thursday and Friday temperatures will start to rebound as some sunshine returns. However, a few showers will still be possible each afternoon. Even this weekend a few more showers will be possible each day.
