Coloradans brace for more severe weather as powerful storms move across Front Range, plains


DENVER — Forecasters are warning Coloradans to brace for more severe weather as powerful storms move across the state, dropping more than two inches of rain in less than an hour is some places.

The National Weather Service says a slow-moving storm system brought heavy rain to much of the Front Range and Colorado's eastern plains Thursday. The heaviest rain is expected Thursday night, and forecasters warned of the possibility of flash floods and mudslides in steep terrain.

The Weather Service says more than 2 inches of rain fell in a little more than an hour northwest of Castle Rock on Thursday evening. Meanwhile, more than 2 inches fell in half an hour northeast of Elizabeth in Elbert County.

The storm is bringing moisture to areas of the state that are already saturated from weeks of rain.
