From The Durango Herald (Ann Butler):

Predictions of heavy rains may lead to flood watches for several days after one was declared Tuesday. “We’ll probably be doing the same thing tomorrow and the next day we did today, declaring a flood watch from about noon to 9 p.m.,” John Kyle, data-acquisition program manager at the Grand Junction office of the National Weather Service, said Tuesday night.

Tuesday’s flood watch covered an area that included Southwest Colorado from the eastern edge of Archuleta County north almost to Grand Junction and west into south-central Utah up to the Interstate 70 corridor. Northwestern New Mexico was under a flood advisory during the same time period. “We’re still looking at a mostly southerly flow with heavy rains still real possible,” Kyle said. “We see a good string of moisture coming through the week, including Saturday, Sunday, Monday, even Tuesday.”
