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.
The first major winter storm of the season is dumping several inches of snow on the area.
Snow, wind, and rain started moving in to Southern Colorado on Sunday evening. By 9 p.m., conditions had worsened and the snow really started picking up.
Along the Palmer Divide, several inches of snow were reported in just a few short hours in the evening.
Meteorologist Mike Madson say the snow is expected to continue until about 9 a.m. Monday morning.
Temperatures are expected to dip into the 20's overnight.
