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.
Colorado health insurance regulators may announce a new plan Thursday for geographic rating zones that help determine insurance premiums.
The Colorado Division of Insurance change comes in response to complaints from four mountain counties that wound up with highest-in-the-nation premiums. The office accepted public comments through Wednesday.
Some expect the "Resort" area of Garfield, Pitkin, Eagle and Summit counties to be added to neighboring counties to smooth differences. The result could be a slight reduction in premiums for the four counties and slightly higher premiums in those neighboring counties.
If approved by federal authorities, the change would not take effect until January of next year.
