Friday looks like the wettest day with heavy rain and fairly widespread coverage. We'll see storms on Saturday favor the north end of our viewing area, and up into Denver.

Sunday looks pretty dry along I-25 with storms mostly west over the mountains. We do have a chance for storms on the 4th of July, but the chances are low in places like Pueblo and our counties to the east of Pueblo.
