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.
Heavy rains yesterday afternoon near Deckers blackened streams
with ash from last summer's Hayman Fire and turned several miles of
the South Platte River smoke-brown with silt.
Minor flooding had been reported in Steamboat Springs and crews
in Georgetown lined Clear Creek with sandbags.
Some minor flooding was possible along the Roaring Fork near
Aspen and the San Miguel near Telluride.
