Discussion

An upper level trough over Arizona will move slowly across the region today and tonight and there will be abundant moisture in the atmosphere. The combination of upper level support and copious amounts of moisture will raise the specter of heavy rainfall in the southern Rockies later today and tonight. By tomorrow, the upper level trough will slide to the east of the area and the result should be a slightly reduced chance for showers and thunderstorms, but the threat for rain will continue over the next several days.
