A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect at NOON and last through MIDNIGHT from most of Southern Colorado. Scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain once again. Burn scars and areas that saw heavy rain yesterday will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
Colorado's statewide smoking ban will not have to be revised.
A legal review yesterday found the religious rights of American Indians are protected by federal law, so smoking in off-reservation religious ceremonies will be allowed.
Any changes to the ban, which was signed into law last month, could have re-ignited the contentious battle over other exemptions.
The ban takes effect on July 1st.
