Cooler and wetter this week for Colorado/Wyoming

We will have a break from the 90-degree heat this week, and just about everyone should receive some rain. It appears likely that some areas will receive locally heavy rainfall, so watch out in flood prone areas. The greatest risk for locally heavy rainfall will be in the Tuesday-Wednesday time frame, with rain possible even in the late night and morning hours on Tuesday-Wednesday.

It’s not a classic monsoon setup that we sometimes see this time of year. But above-average amounts of atmospheric moisture and a disturbance from the northwest might enhance the easterly flow and instability enough to result in soaking rains for parts of the Front Range and high plains of Colorado and southeastern Wyoming.
