Flood risk for Denver metro and I-25 corridor Sunday afternoon

Colorado Division Homeland Security & Emergency Management

Be sure to check the weather before travelling this afternoon and evening if you are near the I-25 corridor. The National Weather Service is warning of potential flash floods in the northern Front Range and Eastern Plains.

Burn scars – such as the Cameron Peak Fire burn area and Calwood Burn scar – have been the focus of flood warnings this summer. However the NWS warned heavy rains on Sunday could also cause flooding elsewhere.

Be sure to avoid areas prone to flooding, and do not attempt to drive on flooded roads.
