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.
Powers Boulevard and Highway 83 will now intersect. Powers will be connected to the Highway just east of Pikes Peak Community College.
City traffic engineers say it will provide easier access to the Colorado Springs Airport, and will make north-south commuting easier as well.
