More widespread rain is in the forecast today. But we'll get it in here for today, and then dry back out for at least the second half of the weekend. Showers right now are popping up in higher elevations. As we go through the day, these become more numerous in the lower elevations. Not expecting severe weather, but know that if a storm pops up over top of you, you could see some heavy rain and some localized flooding. That's because the winds in the atmosphere aren't very strong. So there's nothing to push the storm along too fast.
Flooding is of bigger concern to the north and west of us. Some flood advisories and watches in effect for the Denver area as well as western Colorado. Not only are they expecting heavier rain, but temperatures from the past few days have allowed for massive snow runoff in the higher elevations.
Just general storms expected for today in the News 5 viewing area, tomorrow there's a slight chance for severe weather in the northern part of the area. Tomorrow a few showers linger, but not as widespread as we're expecting today.
Sunday looks nice with dry weather and even warmer temperatures. Next week starts the way we end the weekend with dry, warm conditions.
Have a good weekend... Meteorologist Valerie Abati.
