A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect on Tuesday 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. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
Colorado Springs utilities workers began drilling new water wells Thursday morning to help ease the city's water problems.
The new wells will supplement water supplies for the northern part of Colorado Springs.
The water comes from Denver and Arapahoe aquifers.
The city of Colorado Springs is able to use the water because of an agreement signed during the 1980's.
