Thunderstorms brought heavy rain and hail to Southern Colorado on Saturday.

The heavy rain prompted flooding concerns near the Waldo Canyon burn scar.

Emergency managers for El Paso County reported 3" of rain on Highway 24 near Cascade, along with some small debris. We're told the debris has been cleared.

Radar indicated that up to .50" fell in some areas of the burn scar.

Heavy rain, large hail and strong winds were also reported in northeastern El Paso County, as a cluster of storms moved south through the area.

Neighbors tell 11 News there was water on the road in some areas in Falcon.

A warming and drying trend will start to take hold on Sunday and continue through early next week.
