Please prepare for possible flooding in Windsor over the next few days. The NWS has issued a Flood Warning with the Cache la Poudre River at the Canyon Mouth and in Fort Collins. This is due to forecasted significant increases in stream levels due to precipitation over the next 30 hours. Flash flood intensity thunderstorms are expected this afternoon and evening then steady moderate to heavy rain overnight and early Friday. There could be short period rainfall rates of up to 3 inches per hour under the heaviest thunderstorms. Additionally, there continues to be 1 to 2 inches of water coming out of the high mountain snow pack a day.
