It was hot again Wednesday over eastern Colorado with highs in the mid to upper 90s, but thunderstorms will develop as a cold front rolls into Colorado from the west.
This cold front will likely produce heavy rainfall for the mountains and western valleys Thursday. Flash flood watches are posted over the western third of Colorado, especially near burn scars.
Showers and thunderstorms will be likely across the state on Thursday. Local heavy rain will again be possible over the mountains, but some strong storms will also be possible for Denver and the Eastern Plains.
Thursday's afternoon highs will be in the 70s across the plains and 60s in the mountains — an early taste of fall! In fact, a little snow may dust the highest peaks Thursday night and early Friday!
However, the cooler weather will be short-lived. Highs return to the 90s for the weekend.
