An upslope wind flow today will favor more scattered showers and thunderstorms, but that upslope wind means more rain will fall in areas that have been seeing rain for the past several days. That means areas like Manitou Springs could see some flash flooding once again. Since flash flooding is a considerable threat again today, be sure to stay weather aware by monitoring updates from the First Alert 5 Weather Team and NOAA Weather Radio.
Along with scattered showers and thunderstorms, expect cooler-than-normal temperatures with highs in the 70's and 80's. Rain will likely begin in the mountains from midday to early afternoon before spreading east to the I-25 corridor through late evening. As has been the case, some areas will see rain while other areas will likely remain dry.
The trend for late this week is for drying conditions and warming temperatures. This warm and dry period may be short-lived as some signs point at increasing monsoonal moisture next week.
