...THUNDERSTORMS MAY PRODUCE LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL AND FLASH
FLOODING THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING...

.The combination of a cold front and deep subtropical moisture
moving over the area will support thunderstorms and locally heavy
rainfall this afternoon and evening. Some of these storms will be
capable of producing rainfall rates of 2 inches per hour. This
may produce flash flooding in burn scars, even if storm duration
only lasts 30 minutes. Portions of Douglas and Elbert counties
may see more numerous thunderstorms and local rainfall amounts in
excess of 2 or 3 inches, creating flash flooding. Urban areas
along the I-25 Corridor may experience inundation of streets and
underpasses should a stronger storm move across.

burn scars, where as little as three quarters of an inch of
rain can cause flooding.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

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