In El Paso County, heavy rain closed U.S. Highway 24 west of Manitou Springs for a few hours Friday night and put people near the Waldo Canyon burn scar and Black Forest Fire area on alert.

Slow-moving scattered rain storms brought heavy rain and flooding to some places up and down the Front Range Friday evening.

Street flooding was reported in parts of Denver, Castle Rock earlier Friday evening, although those places received much less rain.
