1032 AM MDT Thu May 23 2019

Recent rains over far western Colorado have resulted in saturated
soils and increased runoff over the past two days. Rainfall rates
this Thursday morning are running as high as two tenths of an
inch in an hour. This has resulted in increased water flow in
several local streams and creeks. Additionally, water runoff in
dry washes and slickrock areas will continue to increase
throughout the late morning and early afternoon hours.

Persons in the outlook area should remain alert for water rises
in local streams and dry washes. Additionally, increased runoff
could result in rockfall or debris slides along local roadways.
