A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect on Tuesday 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. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
Firefighters say a fire that broke out in the bushes at Monroe Elementary this afternoon is now under control.
Monroe Elementary is located off of South Chelton in Colorado Springs.
Firefighters did say there is some smoke damage to the school. Luckily no students were at the school at the time of the fire due to Spring Break.
Damage to the school is limited and school will resume as normal on Monday, according to District 11 officials.
