DENVER- Afternoon highs in the 90s for metro Denver this Sunday afternoon.

We will have thunderstorms in the mountains as well, however, most of the intense, heavy rainfall will be farther south- into Arizona and New Mexico. We have Flash Flood Watches in effect from Aspen to Vail for our central mountains until Sunday evening.

An Ozone Action Day Alert is in effect for the Front Range through Monday afternoon. Ozone concentrations in the Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups category are possible Sunday afternoon and evening, particularly from the western suburbs of Denver, northward along the foothills through Boulder, to the Ft. Collins area, along with southern parts of Weld County. Smoke and haze is returning to the metro which contributes to the higher ozone levels.

Hotter weather will return to the state early next week. There will still be scattered thunderstorms each day for the higher terrain, but Denver and the I-25 Corridor will have lower rain chances and higher temperatures.

Next week we will hang on to the smoke and haze. Temperatures will be close to 100 degrees by mid-week.
