...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM 10 AM MDT THIS MORNING THROUGH THIS EVENING... Includes S, Central, N&W Park County

The National Weather Service in Denver has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for Portions of central and north central
Colorado, including the following areas, in central Colorado,
Central and Southeast Park County, Grand and Summit Counties Below
9000 Feet and South and Southeast Grand/West Central and Southwest
Boulder/Gilpin/Clear Creek/Summit/North and West Park Counties
Above 9000 Feet. In north central Colorado, Jackson County Below
9000 Feet, South and East Jackson/Larimer/North and Northeast
Grand/Northwest Boulder Counties Above 9000 Feet and West Jackson
and West Grand Counties Above 9000 Feet.

* From 10 AM MDT this morning through this evening.

* Slow moving thunderstorms capable of generating heavy rains are
expected to occur off and on from late this morning into this
evening.

* Burn scars in Grand County are at an elevated risk of flash
flooding and debris flows, though there is potential for flash
flooding to occur across the area.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Move away from recently burned areas. Life-threatening flooding of
creeks, roads and normally dry gulches is likely. The heavy rains
will likely trigger rockslides, mudslides and debris flows in steep
terrain.
