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 future is in doubt for an excursion steam train that travels along the Colorado-New Mexico border. Money for the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad is running short and its locomotives are in need of attention.
The railroad is owned jointly by the two state governments. Officials and supporters say it is in trouble because it gets few subsidies and doesn't generate enough income to support day-to-day operation, capital expenditures and maintenance.
A four person commission that oversees the line is scheduled to meet Friday to choose a new contractor to operate the railroad.
