A FLASH FLOOD WATCH remains in effect for all of southern Colorado throughout our evening and overnight on Tuesday. Storms will continue to be an issue, capable of producing heavy rain with very slow movement. Storms look to mainly favor north and east of areas like Colorado Springs and the Waldo Canyon area, but storms cannot be ruled out still in this area. The 11 Breaking Weather team will be monitoring conditions closely. This Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 6pm Wednesday, where another day of thunderstorms is possible. Head to the KKTV 11 Weather Tab for more information on the forecast for Wednesday and beyond.
Four more lynx have been released in Colorado as part of efforts to reintroduce the longhaired,
tuft-eared cats to the state.
The cats were released yesterday. Twenty-eight more will be released in the next several weeks. Trapping, poisoning and development have wiped out the native lynx population in Colorado.
At least 34 of the 96 lynx that were reintroduced to Colorado in 1999 and 2000 are known to have survived. The plan now is to get enough lynx to start breeding so they can sustain the population.
