Sunny morning skies will once again give way to numerous showers and thunderstorms developing this afternoon as deep moisture remains in place in between an area of high pressure to the west and low pressure to the south. Expect locally heavy rain, frequent lightning and gusty winds with storms that form. Storms will be slow-moving, with some lasting well into the evening and tapering off overnight. Debris mud flows may occur as well, especially over areas where recent heavy rains have occurred. Drier air will filter in from the northwest through the weekend and into next week as high pressure builds back in and strengthens from the west. This should result in decreasing coverage of thunderstorms late this weekend, with the best chance over southwest Colorado.   (Please visit http://weather.gov/gjt for more information.)
