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.
Denver is still in the running to host the 2016 Republican National Convention.
The Republican National Committee announced Wednesday that Denver made the latest cut along with Cleveland, Cincinnati, Dallas, Kansas City and Las Vegas. Columbus and Phoenix were eliminated from consideration.
Next, RNC staff plan to visit the six remaining cities to take a closer look at venues, hotels and financing.
Denver argues its success with the 2008 Democratic convention shows it can handle such a large event. Republicans would be nominating their presidential candidate in the same place Barack Obama was picked.
