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 Colorado Wildlife Commission has approved issuing a record number of elk licenses for the approaching big game hunting season.
Commissioners approved a recommendation from the Colorado
Division of Wildlife to grant 146,000 antlerless and either gender elk licenses. That's 10,000 more than last year's allotment.
The division has been trying for years to reduce the state's elk herd to a manageable size, especially in the northwest part of the state.
The commission also approved a number of limited licenses for deer, black bear, pronghorn antelope and moose which are similar to last year's totals.
