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.
Food, family, and fun. They could only mean one thing: the Colorado State Fair.
Saturday marked opening day for the 132nd annual Colorado State Fair. To start things off, a children's parade and a rodeo.
Of course, you'll also see the usual fair fare of livestock judging contests, animal exhibits, and a carnival.
Orgainzers hope they can beat last year's dismal attendance of only 640,000. So far, hopes remain high with good advance ticket sales.
The fair lasts for 16 days.
