11 Breaking Weather Team Forecast Discussion
Meteorologist Christine Rapp
Tuesday, July 29th
A FLASH FLOOD WATCH is in 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. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all through the afternoon and evening.
Cool and wet weather will continue into Wednesday. In fact, the aforementioned FLASH FLOOD WATCH lasts through 6pm Wednesday. High temperatures will only manage the 60s for many locations, unusually cool for late July.
Thursday will warm up a bit, but will still be cool for this time of year. High temperatures will still be in the 60s for some communities. Storms will likely be a bit fewer on Thursday, but anything that pops could bring heavy rain.
Occasional storm chances will remain in the forecast, with Saturday and Sunday possibly being the driest days of the forecast. Below normal temperatures will continue through the next seven days.
The potential for wet afternoons this week means the threat for flash flooding will remain quite high. Keep informed by following us on social media (KKTV 11 Weather, KKTV 11 News) and visiting kktv.com/weather. And, of course, catch us on TV, too!
