Flash Flood Watch in effect

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for much of Colorado north of I-70 until Thursday, July 30 at 6 pm.

Monsoon moisture combined with a moist easterly upslope flow will produce widespread showers and thunderstorms this afternoon into Wednesday. An upper level disturbance will help trigger the showers and storms, which is expected to continue through the night. Additional rain and thunderstorms are expected Wednesday. 

As a second upper level system passes over the state. Rainfall amounts through Wednesday will range from 1 to 2 inches with up to 3 inches possible. If a prolonged period of heavier rainfall develops later tonight into Wednesday morning this could lead to even higher rainfall amounts in some areas.

Precautionary & Preparedness Actions

A flash flood watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
