The National Weather Service is forecasting up to two feet of snow in the eastern mountains and heavy rain starting late today and evening and continuing through tomorrow morning in Colorado. The storm presents a new threat of flooding on the plains, where rural roads were underwater last week.

While river levels are high, David Barjenbruch, with the National Weather Sevice, says there's no worry yet about conditions approaching the 2013 floods. "But we do expect widespread rainfall and the potential for some low-lying areas to be flooded. So anybody living in low-lying areas along river beds or streams should continue to monitor those levels over the next couple of days.”
