A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect this afternoon for most of Southern Colorado. Daytime heating and moisture will combine with a disturbance moving through Colorado to develop numerous thunderstorms. Any one of them will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain. Burn scars and areas that have seen recent heavy rain will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. This FLASH FLOOD WATCH will remain in effect through 6pm Wednesday. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat closely for you the next two days.
Several Colorado resorts are closing their mountains to skiers and snowboarders this weekend as one of the best seasons ever winds down.
According to Ski County USA, Aspen Mountain, Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Vail, Winter Park and Keystone will all be closed after Sunday.
But, season is not over yet at Loveland, Silverton Mountain, and Arapahoe Basin will remain open. A-Basin hopes to stay open
until July fourth.
Though the final numbers won't be in until June, initial figures indicate this year's season may be a record setting one.
The record for visits was 12 million during the 1997-98 season.
