Colorado, Western/Central Fremont County Below 8500 Ft

Flash Flood Warning

Statement as of 5:31 PM MDT on August 21, 2017

Expires 10:15 PM EDT on August 21, 2017


... The Flash Flood Warning remains in effect until 815 PM MDT for
southwestern Fremont... northwestern Custer and northeastern Saguache
counties...

At 530 PM MDT, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms producing heavy
rain moving over western portions of the Hayden Pass burn scar.
Flash flooding is expected.

Excessive rainfall over the burn scar will result in debris flow.
The debris flow can consist of rock, mud, vegetation and other loose
materials.

Flash flooding will remain over mainly rural areas of southwestern
Fremont... northwestern Custer and northeastern Saguache counties.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Move away from recently burned areas. Life-threatening flooding of
creeks, roads and normally dry arroyos is likely. The heavy rains
will likely trigger Rockslides, mudslides and debris flows in steep
terrain, especially in and around these areas.
