From The Denver Channel, we need to be ready for more rain! Areas of heavy rain have developed around the mountains and over the plains.  These showers and storms will end up moving across the eastern half of the state throughout this evening.

These storms could produce some heavy rain in areas across both northern and northeastern Colorado.  A flash flood watch has been issued for the northern Front Range and most of northeastern Colorado through tonight.

The Denver Channel is keeping everyone updated with additional weather alerts, and you can also check out their live weather radar to track what’s coming our way.
