Thunderstorms are moving across the Front Range and into the Eastern Plains. Heavy rain is already hitting the Denver metro and northern Colorado.

A Flash Flood Warning is in effect for Boulder County and parts of Weld County until 7 p.m. 

Water on roads has made driving dangerous in Northern Colorado and Metro Denver. The Aurora Fire Department reported there were stalled cars due to flooding at I-70 and E470.

Larimer County was also under a Flash Flood Warning for multiple hours this afternoon as the region was hit by intense rain.

Officials warned of a life-threatening situation in and around the Cameron Peak burn scar and told people in the area to seek ground immediately.
