Although the threat for flash flooding is diminishing quickly, it's important to remember the rivers and creeks can continue rising even after the rain has ended.
A Flood Warning (NOT a Flash Flood Warning) is in effect for El Paso and eastern Teller Counties for an increased likelihood of flooding along creeks and streams. A Flood Warning is also in effect for Fountain Creek at Colorado Springs until Friday afternoon. At 1:30 AM Friday, Fountain Creek was measured at 5.9 feet at the Colorado Springs measuring site. Water is expected to rise Friday morning to near its flood stage of 8.0 feet.
