DENVER -- It's another rainy day in the metro area Thursday. While we got a break from the showers in the morning, rain is expected to start again in the afternoon.

That means you need to be ready for a wet commute Thursday afternoon.  We don't expect many thunderstorms and certainly not as much rain will fall as did Wednesday.

LINK: See if your neighborhood remains in the path of the storm.

The high Thursday will be near 58 -- staying cool because of the clouds and rain.

Unsettled pattern will continue through Saturday before drier weather moves in on Mother's Day.

Friday will be warmer with highs near 66 and a few showers and storms in the afternoon.

Saturday will be similar with a high of 65.

Sunday looks great with highs near 72 and partly sunny.  Even warmer early next week as highs climb into the low 80s Monday and Tuesday.

Further south, concerns about flooding near the Waldo Canyon burn scar area remain in effect.

Further west, a Winter Weather Advisory was in place in the High Country, where as much a s 5 to 8 inches of snow expected to fall in the higher elevations of the central mountains by the end of Thursday.
