Update 7:10pm: Showers and thunderstorms continue to fall, especially south of U.S. 50. Radar estimates as much as three inches of rain has fallen in parts of El Paso, Pueblo and Otero counties. I'm keeping rain in the forecast through 11pm for Pueblo, through 9pm for Colorado Springs and through 4am for the far southeastern Plains.
We will see another round of showers and thunderstorms Monday, although they should not be as heavy or widespread. Expect rain to develop during the early afternoon and mainly stay along and west of I-25.
Temperatures will remain on the cool side Monday. Highs will be in the 70's and 80's. - Meteorologist John Dissauer
Update 10:12am: A nice start to Sunday across southern Colorado but that will all change within a few hours.
Rain is expected to develop by late morning along the mountains and then slide east/southeast through the afternoon and evening, first affecting the I-25 corridor then the southeastern Plains. Latest high resolution computer models suggest rain will begin near Pikes Peak around 11am.
Rain chances will continue through midnight tonight, especially over the southeast Plains.
Rain could be heavy at times, and the potential exists for storms to "train" over the same areas which increases flooding concerns.
Temperatures will be held down today due to the added clouds and rain in the region. Highs will be in the 70's and 80's this afternoon. - Meteorologist John Dissauer
