Flash Flooding Concerns

There is little change to the going forecast. As we outlined on Wednesday, Colorado is under an active weather pattern this weekend and into next week as monsoonal moisture flows into the state.

Numerous storms impacted the region on Friday, bringing heavy rain, small hail, and lots of lightning to the greater Denver area. We'll repeat this again today. Storms this afternoon will be slow moving and carry with them a lot of heavy rain. With that in mind, the National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for the greater Denver area and points south.

If you think it feels particularly humid out there today, you are absolutely right. Dew points have been in the low to mid 60s across the region all morning. When storms do get going, there will be plenty of moisture to work with through the afternoon and evening. If you're out and about, please heed any flood warnings that are issued.

We'll have our most frequent updates on the weather this afternoon on our Twitter account (@weather5280). You can also track the latest conditions in Denver and across the United States on our current conditions page. (Suggestions of additional resources? Let us know!).
