Showers around metro Denver will decrease through the night into Monday morning. The heaviest storms will continue to shift into the Colorado Springs area where two separate warnings for flash flooding were issued Sunday.
Neither of the warnings were for the Waldo Canyon burn area, they were in the central and eastern sections of the Springs.
Storms in southern and eastern Colorado will keep a FLASH FLOOD WATCH in effect until 9 a.m. Monday for extreme eastern Colorado.
After a cloudy, but dry start to the day Monday in Denver a few lighter showers are expected in the afternoon and evening. 9NEWS Meteorologist Marty Coniglio says that the showers will be much less intense than the downpours that have resulted in 1 to 2 inches of rain in the immediate Denver metro area and up to two and a half inches around Boulder.
An even smaller chance for thunderstorms is in the forecast for Tuesday as temperatures will move back up into the 80s.
By Wednesday a few days of hot, dry weather will return to Denver and the Front Range.
Showers will again be possible Monday with a drying, warming trend by the middle of the week.
