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.
The West Nile Virus is continuing to spread across our state. So far, the disease has been confirmed in 17 counties in Colorado, including El Paso.
When the virus was discovered, the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo said it wasn't concerned about its animals getting West Nile. But now it's taking precautionary measures, with plans to innoculate raptors, and possibly elephants and tapirs.
A golden eagle at the Pueblo Zoo was found to have the virus on Thursday. And on Friday, a magpie in El Paso County also tested positive.
