Slow moving storms bring heavy rain to Front Range
DENVER — Slow moving storms brought heavy rain to the burn zones and much of Colorado’s Front Range Monday. We can expect a repeat Tuesday.
A Flash Flood Warning was issued for the Four-Mile burn area just west of Boulder until 6:30 p.m. Residents were sent notice to be ready to evacuate if conditions required it. Fortunately, the rain let up before that became necessary.
Heavy rain earlier Monday afternoon in the High Park burn area in Larimer County brought mudslides that forced the closure of Highway 14 at Prairie Stove Rd. Reports say four mud and rock slides blocked traffic in Poudre Canyon.
The mud and rocks were cleared and the road reopened early in the evening.
The storms were expected to come and go in metro Denver Monday night and they should end by midnight according to Chief Meteorologist Dave Fraser.
