The latest water vapor imagery clearly shows moisture streaming into our area from the south. While this occurs today, a shortwave will pivot around the area of high pressure that has remained over our area. As the moisture and energy meets, widespread rainshowers and thunderstorms are expected to form from about noon onwards. Models indicating that the San Juans and Central Mountains are favored for the heaviest precipitation but in this regime, any slower moving cells could produce heavy rainfall. More convection is expected again tomorrow but with the moisture plume shifting eastward somewhat, activity should be a bit less.   (Please visit http://weather.gov/gjt for more information.)
