...FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM 1 PM UNTIL MIDNIGHT TONIGHT FOR THE
FRONT RANGE MOUNTAINS, FOOTHILLS, PARK COUNTY, AND PALMER DIVIDE
AREA...

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central
Colorado.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

There will be a higher risk of storms with locally heavy rainfall
and flash flooding this afternoon and evening. While burn areas
would be most at risk, the threat of flash flooding also exists
outside of the burn areas across the foothills and Palmer Divide
area. Heavier rain and urbanized flooding will also be possible
in portions of the Denver metro area and adjacent plains, should
the airmass destabilize sufficiently. Stronger storms could
produce 2 inches of rain in less than 45 minutes.

Be weather aware this afternoon and evening, and do not drive on
flooded roads.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

A gradual drying trend is expected late Tuesday through Wednesday.
The weather looks mostly dry and warm Thursday and Friday, but
storm chances could increase next weekend.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight. However,
any reports of heavy rainfall or flooding would be appreciated.
