Heavy rain and subsequent flooding Sunday stands in stark contrast to both Monday and now Tuesday’s forecast, which is expected to bring high temperatures and dry conditions, forecasters say.
Air quality will likely be poor Tuesday, officials expect. The National Weather Service released an air quality alert for Douglas, Jefferson, Denver, western Arapahoe, western Adams, Broomfield, Boulder, Larimer and Weld counties amid high ozone levels Tuesday.
A hazardous weather outlook for northeast and north central Colorado was also put out by the weather service amid possible flash flooding in the area.
Flooding in the Denver area, however, is unlikely Tuesday where a high of 94 degrees with mostly sunny skies is expected.
Temperatures will drop to an overnight low of 64 and remain mostly clear.
Wednesday’s forecast calls for weather almost no different than in Tuesday’s forecast.
Forecasters expect Wednesday to record a high of 93 with mostly sunny and clear skies.
The high temperatures, dry skies and low probability of rain is expected throughout the week and into Friday.
