Monsoon surge: Cold front promises rain, t-storms, and better air quality

Weather Forecast

DENVER (KDVR) — There will be smoke this morning then improving air quality by this afternoon. Why? A monsoon surge and a cold front will rotate the wind direction and deliver higher rain chances across Colorado.

Flash flooding is likely in the mountains this afternoon, tonight, and Thursday.  There is a high risk of Glenwood Canyon closure and flash flooding on Wednesday and Thursday.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning for part of the Cameron Peak burn scar until 6:15 p.m. A small stream flood advisory is also in place around the area.
