Thunderstorms possible over Colorado’s Front Range Monday evening

After a hot and dry weekend, Monday evening thunderstorms will likely herald a wetter week with the chance of rain every day.

The storms will likely begin in the evening after 4 p.m., bringing heavy rain and lower temperatures to much of the Front Range, as well as south of Denver and the foothills. Flash floods will also be a concern overnight.

Winds all day Monday will be around 5 to 10 mph, with gusts reaching up to 16 mph.

The strongest parts of the storm could produce up to 2 inches of rain in just 30 to 45 minutes, National Weather Service forecasters said.

Current conditions indicate the highest risk of flash flooding is expected in the foothills and across the Palmer Divide Monday evening and night as much of the region is under a flash flood watch, but the Denver metro area could see flash flooding if cloud cover shifts and weather becomes more unstable.

After the thunderstorms on Monday evening, another thunderstorm is possible between 10 p.m. and 1 a.m., then other risks of thunderstorms thereafter until Tuesday morning.

The storms are also bringing much lower temperatures than seen over the weekend, with a high of 83 degrees and a low of 59 degrees. Temperatures in the 80s will continue all week with the possibility of showers.
