MOUNTAINS: Low: 20s/30s; High: 40s/50s. Rain chances will be a little higher across the mountains on Sunday, with the potential for flash flooding in recent burn scar areas.

Extended Outlook:
As an area of low pressure moves close to Southern Colorado early next week, widespread rain and isolated thunderstorms will be the main focus through the middle of the week. The wettest days look to be Monday and Tuesday, with flash flooding concerns over recent burn areas and beneficial moisture for the rest of us. Thunderstorm chances start to diminish late in the week as temperatures warm across the forecast area.
