We have another chance to see some strong to severe thunderstorms by this afternoon and evening. Much like we saw on Saturday the highest risk area is on the eastern plains.
The two main hazards from thunderstorms today will be large hail and damaging wind gusts. But we are also worried about flash flooding because storms won’t be moving all that fast. The biggest flood threat will be in and around recent burn scars, especially the Calwood and Cameron Peak fire zones.

Western Colorado will be mostly dry but a few stray showers are possible there. Because they will have more sunshine afternoon highs will climb well into the 80s. The rest of Colorado will be in the 60s and 70s due to extensive cloud cover.
It will be more of the same on Monday and Tuesday with widespread showers and thunderstorms once again in the forecast. We will remain unsettled due to a large area of low pressure that is cut off from the main jet stream. It will slowly drift through the central and southern Rockies this week.MORE NEWS: Tubing No Longer Banned In North Saint Vrain And Saint Vrain Creeks
