Flash Flood Watch the 416 Burn Scar from 11 AM to 8 PM MDT Friday


A disturbance will push through western Colorado today, increasing shower and storm coverage for the afternoon and evening hours. Storms will favor southwest Colorado. Given how much rain fell across the area earlier this week, and the potential for heavy rainfall with storms on Friday, a Flash Flood Watch has been issued for the 416 burn scar for late Friday morning through Friday evening. Storms could produce rainfall rates in excess of 1 inch per hour, resulting in flooding and runoff concerns on the burn scar.
