...Wet Monsoon pattern will lead to numerous showers and
thunderstorms and possible flooding...

.A very wet monsoon pattern continued today over the area. In
addition, the airmass remains unstable so numerous showers and
thunderstorms will begin developing by around noon. Although all
areas could see heavy rain and some flooding, the best areas for
this will be the mountains and areas west of the Continental
Divide (toward the Arizona border). Sunday will see very little
change and more heavy rain and flooding is possible. Thunderstorm
coverage and flood potential should decrease some after Sunday.
