A significant storm system is forecast to bring heavy rain and mountain snow to the Rockies and the Plains this weekend.   

Flash flooding will be possible along with strong to severe thunderstorms. Large hail, damaging winds and some tornadoes will be possible as the cold front interacts with warm, unstable air.
