Widespread showers will continue across the central Great Basin and central/southern Rockies the next few days. Much of the activity should be scattered in nature, but anomalous moisture trapped over the region could lead to locally moderate to heavy rains. Heavy rains and flash flooding is expected across eastern Colorado and much of Oklahoma. Below normal temperatures will continue beneath a broad trough carved out over the eastern half of the Nation.
