Good chance of rain, thunderstorms today for the mountains and Front Range

A small surge of Monsoon moisture is en route to Colorado.  Today is our best chance of actual rain in the next 7 days.  We'll also see thunderstorms mixed in.  Highs reach 85 in Denver, Boulder and Fort Collins.  The best chance of rain is 2pm-10pm.

The Mountains have Flash Flood Watches for parts of the southern mountains including the Spring Creek Fire zone.  I'm forecasting a high chance (60%) of rain and thunderstorms today in the Central and Southern Mountains.  A 40% chance in the Northern Mountains.  Higher humidity levels.  High temps 75-85.

The Monsoon moisture lingers over the mountains south of I-70 through the weekend.  That means good chances for afternoon rain/t-storms each day.  So, plan on lightning each afternoon if you're climbing, biking, hiking.

It's a split forecast.  The Front Range turns hot and dry with mid 90s Saturday-Sunday-Monday.
