Extended Outlook:
Early Saturday morning a cold front will move into southern Colorado from the north. This front paired with monsoon moisture coming in from the west will provide a rainy afternoon. There will be flash flood concerns in the mountains tomorrow as well as the I-25 corridor. Storms will begin in the mountains by late morning, expand and move east through the afternoon and evening. Storms may linger into Sunday morning which will stabilize the atmosphere and reduce the chance of rain for Sunday evening. Another surge of energy and flash flood concerns return Monday.
