Heavy rain is likely to continue through the night for the Eastern Plains. Flooding will be a concern for the plains as a long line of storms continues to move through.

The rest of the state will slowly clear in the overnight hours with lingering rain continuing in parts of the central mountains.

Heading into Tuesday afternoon, more rain is possible for parts of the mountains and Denver. Tuesday's rain looks to shift more to southern and southeastern Colorado. Flooding will likely be a concern in these areas.
