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.
For the first time in many years you couldn't enjoy the Colorado State Fair on Labor Day.
Sunday was the last day for the fair in Pueblo. Despite one less day organizers say attendance was up about 5% this year. More than 667,000 people attended. That's about 30,000 people more than last year.
The fair was cut to 16 days this year because of traditionally poor attendance on Labor Day.
