FLOODING PROBLEMS ACROSS THE FRONT RANGE...
...RIVERS AND CREEKS ALONG THE FRONT RANGE MAY RISE THURSDAY
NIGHT AND INTO THIS WEEKEND FLOODING LOW LYING AREAS...

ABUNDANT MOISTURE COUPLED WITH A WEATHER SYSTEM THAT WILL BRING
UPSLOPE FLOW TO NORTHEASTERN COLORADO WILL BRING WIDESPREAD SLOW
MOVING THUNDERSTORMS AND HEAVY RAIN...THURSDAY NIGHT INTO FRIDAY.
UPSLOPE FLOW WILL LIKELY FOCUS THE HEAVIEST RAINS IN AND NEAR THE
FOOTHILLS AS WELL AS THE PALMER DIVIDE. ALREADY SATURATED SOILS WILL
INCREASE THE CHANCE OF FLOODING PROBLEMS.

GENERAL RAINFALL TOTALS OF 1 TO 2 INCHES ARE POSSIBLE...WITH LOCALLY
HIGHER AMOUNTS ESPECIALLY IN THE FOOTHILLS AND DOWN OVER THE PALMER
DIVIDE EAST INTO LINCOLN COUNTY.

RUNOFF WILL THEN TAKE A FEW DAYS TO DRAIN AND RUN OUT IN MAIN
RIVERS...NAMELY THE SOUTH PLATTE RIVER...TO AFFECT THE FAR
NORTHEASTERN COLORADO COUNTIES THROUGH THE WEEKEND.
