Forecast-
There is a slight risk of severe weather in the Denver Metro area today. Realistically, the severe stuff should stay along and to the south east of the Palmer Divide but there’s always the chance of an anomalous storm popping up here on the southeast side of town. What I would be concerned about is the rainfall that we will be getting over the next two days. With mountain snow-pack runoff already high due to the warm temperatures that we’ve had, the possibility for flooding in most of the state will be high. The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood watch for basically the entire state with the exception of the northwest corner. The current rainfall predictions have the Metro area seeing well over an inch of rain and that will certainly lead to flooding through Saturday.

Hazards-
The most significant hazard with this storm system is the possibility for widespread flooding. Remember, turn around, don’t drown. Some hail and strong winds will be possible on the southeast side of town but a weak tornado can’t be ruled out if the conditions are right.

Have a great day!
