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.
The search for survivors of a helicopter crash is over, though recovery efforts still continue.
Divers and search crews were able to find the cockpit voice recorder along with the bodies of 8 people inside the helicopter that crashed in the Gulf of Mexico earlier this week. Among the passengers, 46 year-old Donald J. Janning of Monument.
The search was called off last night. Investigators are now trying to determine the cause of the crash.
