DENVER (AP) -- Forecasters say minor flooding could occur as sharply warmer air settles in and melts away the remnants of the weekend snowstorm.

The high temperature in Denver was 69 degrees yesterday (Monday), and 76 degrees is expected today (Tuesday).

Tomorrow (Wednesday), there will be a 10 percent chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms, with a high of about 77 degrees. A high of 80 degrees is in the forecast Thursday.

Normal high temperatures for this time of year in Denver are in the lower 60s.

The National Weather Service says the warm weather raises the possibility of minor flooding, especially in the foothills.

The weather service says the South Platte River is filled nearly to its banks from Adams County downstream through Morgan County, and low-lying areas along the river could be prone to flooding.
