A Flash Flood Watch will remain in effect until midnight for the I-25 corridor from the Wyoming state line down through the New Mexico state line. This also includes our recent burn scars. Flooding has already been reported in the Pikes Peak Region, with the threat for additional burn scar, urban and low lying flooding through late this evening.
The overnight hours should allow for some relief, with an overall drying trend expected by Friday morning.

The atmosphere will slowly dry out this weekend, but lingering moisture is likely to maintain the potential for afternoon showers and thunderstorms across parts of Southern Colorado. Expect more or less "garden variety" thunderstorms for the holiday weekend. At the same time, temperatures will be warming up, with more of a summer-like feel in most areas as we head towards the middle of next week.
