Extended outlook forecast:
Monsoon moisture is coming back to the region Friday, with even more rain expected into early next week.

Storm chances will generally be best in the mountains from Friday through the start of next week, but we still have chances along and east of I-25. Saturday will be one of the coolest days of the weekend with overcast skies and highs in the 70s across the plains.

We are going to keep seeing storms through the start of next week, but they will be very spotty in nature and chances will be low for areas east of the interstate.
