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.
New ammunition limits and more background checks on firearm purchases will be under consideration as Colorado Democrats start pushing gun proposals after the mass shootings at an Aurora theater and a Connecticut elementary school.
The House Judiciary committee is expected to take its first votes on the proposals Tuesday. One bill would make it a crime to have or sell large-capacity gun magazines. Another proposal would require background checks on private gun sales.
Opponents have raised questions about how either proposal would be implemented.
The bills are part of a package of proposals Democrats announced last week. Democrats have already rejected Republican ideas to reduce gun violence, including a bill to allow school employees to carry concealed weapons.
