After a day of storms, hail, and tornadoes in northeast Colorado, which included placing 12 counties under a severe thunderstorm watch, Kiowa County is not expected to see rain Sunday. The next chance of precipitation is predicted for Tuesday evening.

High temperatures for the coming week are expected to be in the low 70s to low 80s
