DENVER --   Storms and showers will continue to bring pockets of moderate to heavy rainfall to the state through Sunday night. 

Storms will spread across the plains, with the main threat being heavy rainfall. Some storms could produce 1 to 3 inches of rain over an hour or two, which could produce localized minor flooding. 

The risk of severe thunderstorms, with wind gusts up to 60 mph and hail, is greatest over the far northeastern plains. Showers and thunderstorms will continue over the NE plains for much of the night.

Monday will be much cooler in Denver. Highs will only be in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees. Showers and storms are likely to continue throughout the day.

Skies gradually clear on Tuesday, with highs rebounding back to seasonal values, near 90. The chance for late-day storms will stick around through much of the week, especially in the mountains and foothills. 

So far, we've seen 38 days with temperatures either at or above 90 degrees this summer. Around 85% of our state is experiencing drought conditions. We could definitely benefit from the rain that's on the way!
