A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect this 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. This FLASH FLOOD WATCH will remain in effect through 6pm Wednesday. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat closely for you the next two days.
An investigation is ongoing into another fatal airplane crash near Centennial Airport.
The most recent crash occurred Saturday night and killed all four people on board.
The crash of the Cessna 425 was the fourth fatal accident in nine months near the airport. The plane went down about three miles south of the runway and within a half-mile of an apartment and housing subdivision.
National Transportation Safety Board investigator Aaron Sauer won't speculate on the cause of the crash but says it was raining at the time. There are large power lines in the area, but Sauer says there's no evidence the plane struck anything before it hit the ground.
No one on the ground was injured and the victims haven't been identified.
Sauer says friends of the victims visited the site yesterday morning. One man, Buddy Lewis, says Stephen Gavit was the pilot and the passengers were Gavit's teenage grandson, his grandson's friend and Gavit's friend.
