DENVER -- Overnight rain showers left many roads, bridges and ramps with standing water, causing delays during the morning commute Wednesday.

The ramp from Broadway to southbound Interstate 25 had a lot of standing water as drivers slowly made their way through it. One vehicle became stuck in the water, and the driver was seen pushing the vehicle out of it.

A tow truck driver arrived at the scene to move the vehicle.

On southbound I-25 near Alameda Avenue, crews were called out because of standing water in one lane of traffic. There were reports of several other roads, highways and interstates throughout the metro area having standing water.

The rain showers will move out of the area and things will turn drier with some midday sunshine expected. There is a 20 percent of afternoon thunderstorms, but clouds will keep temperatures in the upper 60s.
