…FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM FRIDAY MORNING THROUGH FRIDAY EVENING…
The National Weather Service in Grand Junction has expanded the
* Flash Flood Watch to include portions of northwest Colorado and west central Colorado, including the following areas, in northwest Colorado, Elkhead and Park Mountains. In west central Colorado, Grand and Battlement Mesas and West Elk and Sawatch Mountains.
* From Friday morning through Friday evening.
* Monsoonal moisture remains entrenched over portions of west central and northern Colorado mountains. This will lead to multiple rounds of afternoon thunderstorms capable of producing heavy rainfall. Several areas have received heavy rainfall the past few days and additional amounts could lead to excess runoff and localized flash flooding. Rainfall amounts of a half to one inch in a short duration will exacerbate flooding concerns in the watch area.
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
