A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect at NOON and last through MIDNIGHT from most of Southern Colorado. Scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain once again. Burn scars and areas that saw heavy rain yesterday will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
A six-mile stretch of Interstate 25 will be closing in both directions during the night of the presidential debate at the University of Denver.
Details of the closure could change, but state transportation officials said Wednesday they expect to close I-25 from the Santa Fe Drive interchange to the Hampden Avenue interchange from roughly 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Oct. 3.
City and state officials say federal authorities had asked for the closure to ensure safety during the debate between President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney.
