A FLASH FLOOD WATCH remains in effect for all of southern Colorado throughout our evening and overnight on Tuesday. Storms will continue to be an issue, capable of producing heavy rain with very slow movement. Storms look to mainly favor north and east of areas like Colorado Springs and the Waldo Canyon area, but storms cannot be ruled out still in this area. The 11 Breaking Weather team will be monitoring conditions closely. This Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 6pm Wednesday, where another day of thunderstorms is possible. Head to the KKTV 11 Weather Tab for more information on the forecast for Wednesday and beyond.
If you're in crunch time when it comes to shipping out those Christmas gifts, a little bit of relief courtesy the U.S. Postal System.
Several locations have extended their hours. And 6 locations around Colorado Springs will even be open Sunday.
Ron Perry, customer relation director with the USPS, says around this time, the motto is "you snooze, you lose."
"Once we get into that Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, you're going to run into the bottleneck aspect of things and it's just going to slow the process down more."
A couple of quick tips:
If you're trying to ship a gift within the state, the recommended deadline is Wednesday. Within the U.S., it's Tuesday. And if it's going international, good luck. The deadline's already past.
