A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect at NOON and last through MIDNIGHT from most of Southern Colorado. Scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain once again. Burn scars and areas that saw heavy rain yesterday will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
Life returned to a normal pace Monday, after Interstate 80 just inside Nebraska from the Colorado border was reopened.
The interstate reopened late Sunday, two days after an eastbound semitrailer slammed into the center support beams of a bridge about three miles west of town. The impact killed the driver and caused the bridge to collapse onto the highway.
Traffic was rerouted for about a 10 mile stretch around the interstate closure while crews removed the bridge and inspected the roadway.
The accident happened not far from I-80's interchange with Interstate 76, which runs from Denver up to the highway in Nebraska.
