Flooding still a possibility in northern Colorado

Drier weather is on its way but flooding is still a possibility in northern Colorado.

The National Weather Service says runoff from the weekend rains has raised the levels of the South Platte River in Weld County.

A flood warning is in effect until Monday afternoon but the river is expected to fall below flood stage by the evening. In Pitkin County, officials are warning rafters, kayakers and drivers about fallen trees and rock slides after rainy weather.

On Sunday a tree fell across the full width of the Roaring Fork River, making it hazard to river runners. It was later removed.
