KUSA - Another day of rain with a possibility of more flash flooding Sunday. A cold front is traveling south into Colorado increasing the chance for rain for the Front Range. Rain will develop through the day with additional rainfall amounts ranging from 1 to 2 inches in the high country and Foothills. Accumulations of half an inch to an inch expected for the urban corridor.
Flash flooding is still a possibility for areas with extremely saturated soil and mud and rock slides are also possible in the mountains and foothills due to the additional rainfall. A flash flood watch is in effect along the Front Range mountains, foothills and adjacent plains until 6 p.m. this afternoon. And flood warnings are still in effect for northern Colorado counties until the middle of the week or until river levels improve.
The other side of the story for Sunday will be the cooler temperatures. Saturday's afternoon high rose to 79 degrees, but highs for Sunday will be from 10 to 15 degrees cooler. Daytime highs are expected to be in the low 60s and upper 50s along the Front Range. Mountain temperatures will be in the low to mid 50s, warmer on the western slope with highs in the 70s.
Rain is expected to decrease through the early evening and overnight with areas of patchy fog developing. Also, areas of snow are possible in higher elevations above 11,000 but no winter travel advisories are expected.
Small chances for rain are possible for the coming week with isolated afternoon storms likely from Monday through Thursday over the mountains.
