Denver weather: More storms — and potentially more flooding — on the way

There is a likelihood for rain and thunderstorms on Saturday, raising the possibility of flash floods — especially in burn areas, said the National Weather Service in Boulder.

The threat of flash flooding extends across a large portion of the state, including the high country and Front Range. Storms will start around noon and will continue into the evening, according to the weather service.

Storms are also possible in the Denver area, where temperatures will cool off to a high of 75 degrees, after 1 p.m.

The flash flood watch is in effect for most of the metro, including Denver, Jefferson, Arapahoe, and Boulder counties. Weld, Park, Gilpin and Larimer counties are also under the watch, which is in effect until 9 p.m., according to the national service. Saturday night’s low will drop to 61 degrees.

Sunday’s forecast calls for more rain, with the chance of precipitation at 40% through the morning. Otherwise, expect sunny skies with a high of 82 degrees.

Mostly cloudy skies with a lower chance of showers are happening Sunday night. The low will be around 60 degrees.
