A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect at NOON and last through MIDNIGHT from most of Southern Colorado. Scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain once again. Burn scars and areas that saw heavy rain yesterday will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
A high wind warning was in effect for portions of the Pikes Peak Region this morning, as gusts up to 60 miles per hour toppled trees and even knocked over a semi truck in Colorado Springs.
Meteorologist Branden Borremans says gusts reached 70-80 miles per hour from Monument to the Air Force Academy.
This afternoon, expect winds to considerably diminish. Temperatures will remain mild.
High winds like we saw this morning are not expected again in the next few days.
