Presented October 4, 2013, at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado. The deadly flood that ravaged several counties along the Front Range of the Colorado Rockies during the week of September 10th, 2013, is believed to be the worst in the state's history. It claimed several lives and destroyed or damaged numerous homes and roads.

In the context of NCAR's Short-Term Explicit Prediction (STEP) program, an effort is under way to understand the flood event and to improve forecasting of future heavy rainfall and flood events.

This research seminar presents what has been learned so far from observations and modeling, including coupled hydrologic modeling. The presenters also discuss a vision for an end-to-end hydrometeorological prediction system for tackling the challenging problem of flash flood prediction.
