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.
Despite some evening thunderstorms, a weeklong heat wave is threatening to increase the risk of wildfire danger across Colorado.
The wet spring left behind lush grass and underbrush, something that hasn't been in years because of the drought. But if the dry weather continues, that growth could become fuel for a wildfire.
For now, fire experts are still predicting a normal fire season for the state and a below normal season in portions of the higher elevations in southwestern Colorado.
The forecast will be updated next month.
