DENVER — Denver and vicinity will remain cool and wet due to a strong spring storm that is slowly swirling over the state.

The threat for severe thunderstorms, hail and tornadoes has shifted east to near the Kansas border.

Areas of heavy rain and localized flooding will still be possible through early Friday. In the mountains, rain shifts to snow over higher terrain. Accumulations of around 10 to 18 inches over 10,000 feet will be likely over the mountains along and east of the Continental Divide. A winter storm warning is in effect in these areas until noon on Friday.

A flood watch remains in effect through Friday morning for north central and northeast Colorado. Showers and storms, plus excessive runoff may result in the flooding of rivers, creeks and low-lying, flood-prone areas.

Burn scars will also be susceptible to flash flooding.

Friday will stay cool and unsettled with periods of showers. The weekend will also be rather cool and showery (sorry to all the moms!).

Early next week will gradually warm up and dry out.
