Gazette Premium Content Flooding possible in several parts of Colorado

DENVER — Heavy rain could cause flash flooding in the Front Range foothills Friday.

The National Weather Service says some storms could potentially drop 1 to 2 inches of rain an hour. The Poudre River near Greeley and other waterways are already full because of melting snow, so they may not be able to hold the new water.

The storms are expected to develop in the mountains by midday and then move eastward in the afternoon.

Flood warnings are also posted around western Colorado, around Grand Junction, Meeker and Gunnison.

Tubing has been banned in both Boulder and Clear creeks because of the high water. This week, a 14-year-old boy and his uncle died after being swept away in the Poudre. A rafter also disappeared in the Colorado River.
