Flooding Threat

Flood Threat May be Passing

A flood warning is in effect through the weekend for Moffat County because of melting snow. But overall, the flood threat is starting to dissipate.

Minor flooding is still possible along the Yampa River starting at the Dinosaur National Monument to the Colorado/Utah border and the Green River. But according to the latest Flood Threat Bulletin from the Colorado Water Conservation Board – no other flood advisories are in place going into the weekend. While melting snow is still the main concern a fast moving cold front could produce strong rain storms along the northeastern plains on Thursday and Friday. This may result in minor nuisance flooding along the Poudre River near Ft. Collins and Greeley.

A cooler weather pattern is also in the forecast for the following week and that would continue to diminish any runoff problems.
