NEXT WEEK: A meandering area of low pressure in the upper levels of the atmosphere will keep a daily chance of showers and storms going.

"High dew points and oppressive humidity are expected through the remainder of the week", forecasters wrote.

Wednesday NightShowers and thunderstorms likely, mainly after 1 a.m. A few heavy rains could produce isolated flooding along the I-25 corridor, but the best flooding concerns remain in the mountains and on the burn scars. The showers will be on and off as the low spins to the west of Ohio. We expect several complexes of storms to move from north to south into North Mississippi overnight tonight. These storms will bring damaging winds and large hail with them, and an isolated tornado can not be ruled out.

Starting Thursday, the stalled system will dissipate which should result in more sunshine, higher temperatures & lower (but still possible) rain chances.

Storms become more isolated and fewer in number by the end of the week with highs warming back to the lower 90s. This could be the most active time in terms of flash flood warnings and torrential downpours with an inch or two per hour rainfall rates.
