The National Weather Service in Denver has issued a

* Thunderstorms will become more numerous across the mountains and

be the Cameron Peak, East Troublesome, and Williams Fork burn
areas, with a little lower threat for the Calwood burn area.
Rainfall amounts up to 1 inch will be possible in less than an
hour.

* Burn scars will be susceptible to heavy rainfall, leading to quick
runoff and possible debris and mud flows.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
