A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Wednesday evening

The flash flood watch will last until midnight, while the severe thunderstorm watch is in effect until 7 p.m. Temperatures are near 80 degrees depending on shower timing and coverage.

The National Weather Service said there's a chance of showers Wednesday, and thunderstorms are possible in the afternoon. Anywhere from 2 to 4 inches of rain are possible, according to Wilmoth.

Some thunderstorms are possible Thursday afternoon and during the evening rush, but they are not expected to be significant.

The upper-level low which prompted several rounds of strong thunderstorms over the weekend is spinning around just to our west this morning and it will meander close by for at least the first half of the week. With the ground already saturated, it won't take much additional rain to produce localized flooding, especially in areas of poor drainage and along smaller streams and creeks.

More heavy showers and thunderstorms are possible through Wednesday. Temperatures are near 80 degrees depending on shower timing and coverage

The National Weather Service has allowed a severe thunderstorm warning to expire for western Fremont County, but a flash flood warning is in effect around the Hayden Pass Fire burn scar. Rain chances will come down slightly by the end of the week.

The weekend, however, is expected to be dry with high temperatures in the mid-80s. It has rained in New York City nine out of the past 13 days.

Saturday will start out with patchy fog in the morning, and then it will be mostly cloudy, with a chance of showers, and a high near 82.

The forecast now calls for a 50 percent chance of afternoon storms in Boulder County.
