DENVER (AP) – The National Weather Service is warning of minor flooding after advisories were issued for rivers in northern and central Colorado.

The flood advisories were issued for the Cache La Poudre, South Platte, the Colorado, the North Platte, Eagle and Elk rivers.

Weather forecasters say cooler weather has slowed the melting of high mountain snowpack, allowing some rivers to slowly recede over the next few days.

Water levels are expected to increase later this week as warmer weather returns.
