A FLASH FLOOD WATCH remains in effect for all of southern Colorado throughout our evening and overnight on Tuesday. Storms will continue to be an issue, capable of producing heavy rain with very slow movement. Storms look to mainly favor north and east of areas like Colorado Springs and the Waldo Canyon area, but storms cannot be ruled out still in this area. The 11 Breaking Weather team will be monitoring conditions closely. This Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 6pm Wednesday, where another day of thunderstorms is possible. Head to the KKTV 11 Weather Tab for more information on the forecast for Wednesday and beyond.

The Boulder chapter of an animal support group has raised $3,000 to pay for a permanent memorial to an elk that was killed by a police officer.
Supporters from the organization In Defense of Animals say the memorial would be a symbol of what is important to Boulder residents.
According to the Boulder Daily Camera, two police officers accused of conspiring to illegally kill the trophy elk in Boulder on Jan. 1 resigned. The two were arrested on nine charges, including killing an elk out of season and tampering with evidence.
One of the officers said the elk looked like it needed to be put down because of injuries.
