DENVER (AP) – The National Weather Service says rivers in Colorado are running high with snowmelt and rainfall.

The weather service issued flood advisories for the Cache La Poudre and South Platte rivers after more than two inches of rain fell on Monday.

The weather service said the North Platte rivers are rising and forecast to rise above flood stage on Monday night.

Meteorologist Jim Kalina says snowmelt and rain are leaving several rivers running high on Monday in Jackson and Grand counties because of snowmelt and rainfall.

Kalina said no major problems have been reported.
