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.
The chance of rain/t-storms in Denver runs 20% Wednesday afternoon, 60% on Thursday, and 20% on Friday. Expect cooler highs in the low to mid 80s Thursday and Friday in Denver.
It will turn drier Saturday-Monday. Expect less smoke on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
