11 Breaking Weather Team Forecast Discussion
Meteorologist Christine Rapp
Wednesday, July 30th
Cool and wet weather will continue into Wednesday. In fact, the FLASH FLOOD WATCH lasts through 6pm Wednesday. High temperatures will only manage the 60s for many locations, unusually cool for late July. Showers this afternoon will continue to be capable of producing heavy rain, and with the combination of saturated soils from the past few days, flash flooding could potentially be an issue not just along area burn scars but surrounding areas of southern Colorado. All will be closely monitored this afternoon.
Thursday will warm up a bit, but will still be cool for this time of year. High temperatures will still be in the 60s for some communities. Storms will likely be a bit fewer on Thursday, but anything that pops could bring heavy rain.
Occasional storm chances will remain in the forecast, with Saturday and Sunday possibly being the driest days of the forecast. Below normal temperatures will continue through the next seven days.
The potential for wet afternoons this week means the threat for flash flooding will remain quite high. Keep informed by following us on social media (KKTV 11 Weather, KKTV 11 News) and visiting kktv.com/weather. And, of course, catch us on TV, too!
