11 Breaking Weather Team Forecast Discussion

Meteorologist Christine Rapp
Friday, August 22nd

A storm system will be moving through the state today and will bring better rain chances. We're expecting showers and thunderstorms to develop over the Eastern Mountains during the early afternoon, then race northeastward during the mid to late afternoon. The fast movement of these cells will limit the overall flash flood threat. However, the Waldo Canyon Burn Scar will still need to be monitored closely, as all it takes is brief torrential rain to cause flash flooding. While a second round of rain will be possible this evening, it likely won't be as intense as what falls this afternoon.

Saturday looks mainly dry and warmer. A great day to head to the Colorado State Fair in Pueblo! Be sure to pack the water though - temperatures will warm into the low 90s there.

Our mainly dry stretch looks to continue into Sunday with rain chances on the increase through early next week. As rain chances are on the rise, temperatures will head in the opposite direction, cooling to the 70s and 80s through Wednesday.
