Tuesday Night, June 28th
There will be a few storms roaming Southern Colorado this evening, but most of them will likely stay in the mountains. Late tonight across the Southeast Plains (east of La Junta) there is also the potential for a complex of storms. Hail, heavy rain, and a lot of lightning will be possible with those storms...mainly after 10pm.
Isolated storms return again on Wednesday, with better chances for storms to make there way off the higher terrain. Temperatures will be in the 80s and 90s again.
We are tracking the potential for significant rainfall in Southern Colorado Thursday into Friday, and possibly into Saturday. The storms that develop on these days will be more than capable of heavy rain, some hail, lots of lightning, and gusty wind. At this time, I am most concerned about the threat for flash flooding, versus other modes of severe weather. If any of the stronger storms move over area burn scar, the threat for flash flooding will certainly increase. It will be cooler too, with temperatures will also cool into the 60s, 70s and 80s.
It looks like storms will become much fewer and farther between on Sunday and for The Fourth of July. Can't completely rule them out, but it does look less active...
