Rain returning to Southeastern Colo.; Flash flooding possible

A disturbance bringing rain to southwestern Colorado will round the top of a high pressure ridge and move over Southeastern Colorado this afternoon. That disturbance will work with an upslope breeze to generate showers and thunderstorms, though not every location will see the rain. The rain will begin over the mountains around late morning or early afternoon and move out to the I-25 Corridor and the Southeast Plains later in the afternoon and into the evening.

The potential for heavy rain exists, and if heavy rain falls for prolonged time periods flash flooding could occur. This is especially true if that heavy rain falls on the burn scars.

Temperature-wise, highs will be in the 80's on the Palmer Divide around Colorado Springs and Monument. Teller County highs will be in the 70's, including Woodland Park and Cripple Creek. Highs will be in the 90's along and south of the Arkansas River.

Today is a day to monitor weather conditions closely, especially if you are areas prone to flash flooding.
