For the risk for flash flooding

Wx Summary

Scattered to numerous showers and storms are expected today through Monday. Some of the rainfall could be heavy and lead to flash flooding, especially in areas that have recieved heavy rainfall in recent days. Rain chances taper off for Tuesday and Wednesday, with Wednesday looking like the driest of the next five days, with only a 30% chance for rain. By Thursday, yet another frontal system moves into the area and that will likely increase rain and storm chances yet again. Those elevated rain chances are expected to be with us through Saturday, as it looks right now.

On This Day 

1976 – A stationary thunderstorm produced more than ten inches of rain which funneled into the narrow Thompson River Canyon of northeastern Colorado. A wall of water six to eight feet high wreaked a twenty-five mile path of destruction from Estes Park to Loveland killing 156 persons. The flash flood caught campers, and caused extensive structural and highway damage. Ten miles of U.S. Highway 34 were totally destroyed as the river was twenty feet higher than normal at times.

1917 – World War I: Battle of Passchendaele (Third Battle of Ypres) begins, goes on to cause approximately 500,000 casualties.
