Flash Flood Watches for the Mountains
Posted at 5:09 AM, Aug 03, 2021

Much of Colorado remains under some type of weather advisory. Over the mountains and foothills, Flash Flood Watches remain in effect for the threat of locally heavy rain, flash flooding and mudslides.

An Air Quality Advisory continues in effect for eastern Colorado as the combination of smoke particles from western wildfires and moderate to high levels of surface ozone make conditions unhealthy for persons in sensitive groups, such as those with COPD or asthma.

Temperatures stayed in the low to mid 80s today and will again tomorrow for Denver and the plains. It will be quite cool in the mountains with clouds and showers keeping readings in the 50s to low 60s.

The winds aloft are quite light, so the weather pattern will not change much over the state, although a weak weather disturbance aloft will bring an increase in thunderstorm activity tonight and early Wednesday.

The weak disturbance will drift southward tomorrow and carry the risk of flooding rains over the southern third of the state and into New Mexico. By Thursday and Friday, the weather will turn drier over most of Colorado, with storms becoming much more isolated for the mountains and little chance for rain across the plains.

Warmer weather will return on Thursday as highs rise into the 90s for the end of the week and through the weekend. In the high country, highs will bounce back to the middle 70s and 80s.

Wildfire smoke will become more widespread again across Colorado this weekend. Some of the smoke from Colorado fires, but much more from the bigger fires to the west of our state.
