The weather will stay hot and sunny in the Denver area before possibly turning wet and stormy later in the day.
The National Weather Service in Boulder said Sunday’s high temperature will be around 90 degrees. Thunderstorms could starting rolling in after 3 p.m. The chance for rain is about 30% with winds picking up and gusting as high as 22 mph.
Some of the storms over the mountains could be slow-moving and unleash enough rain to cause minor flooding in areas scarred by wildfires. The weather service said there will be a limited risk of flooding Monday in the East Troublesome burn area in Grand County and the Cameron Peak burn area in Larimer and Jackson counties.
There is a 10% chance of storms and showers will continue until around 9 p.m. Sunday, but the weather is expected to gradually clear. The Denver-area’s low temperature will be 61 degrees.
Labor Day’s forecast calls for sunny, breezy weather with a high of 91 degrees and a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms before 9 p.m.
Some of today’s storms over the mountains may be slow moving and produce enough rain for minor burn area flooding. On Monday, storm coverage will be lower, but there is still a limited threat for the East Troublesome and Cameron Peak burn areas. Little or no threat Tuesday. #cowx pic.twitter.com/r5pXU7BMHb
