Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 9:57 AM MDT on July 01, 2016

... Flash Flood Watch in effect noon through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Denver has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for the Front Range foothills... urban corridor
and adjacent plains in Colorado including the Denver Metro area

* noon through this evening

* numerous thunderstorms will develop this afternoon over the
foothills and Palmer Divide then shift eastward across the I-25
corridor and adjacent plains late this afternoon and evening.
The airmass will remain very moist and become increasingly
unstable with afternoon heating. The slower moving storms could
produce very heavy rain with the potential for flash flooding.
The stronger storms could produce up to 2 inches of rainfall in
less than one hour... and up to 4 inches of rainfall in 2 to 3
hours if a storm becomes stationary.

* Flash flooding may cause rapid rises in rivers and streams...
and flooding in normally dry creeks and low lying areas. Heavy
rain may overwhelm drainage systems causing overtopping of roads
at creek crossings and flooding of city streets. Rural roads may
wash out... and rock and mud slides are possible in mountain
areas... especially in the burn scars.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
