Extreme Flash Flood Risk in Colorado Through Tonight

The green areas represent flash flood watches. This includes the Denver Metro area, the Front Range and the Palmer Ridge as well as the mountains. 

Every component is in place for major flash flooding. The last two weeks of July and the first two weeks of August, statistically, a period of high flash flooding. 

I strongly recommend curtailing outdoor activities and unnecessary travel into the mountains and high-risk areas until this threat has ended. Unfortunately, more heavy rain is likely tomorrow and tomorrow night. 

Update as of 12:45pm MDT:

The radar at 12:40pm MDT, shows thunderstorms developing over the Front Range southwest of Denver and near Colorado Springs. 

Please monitor the weather in these areas the rest of the day.
