A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 9pm Wednesday. Heavy rain is possible throughout the day, and this combined with already saturated soils could lead to further flash flood problems both near and away from all area burn scars. Stay with 11 News throughout the day for weather updates.
Unusually warm weather will be the main weather theme early this week. High temperatures in the 70's and lower 80's will be possible through Wednesday. Tuesday and Wednesday look to have the best shot for record highs, as the current records are only in the 60's and 70's for Colorado Springs and Pueblo. We have forecast highs in the 70's to around 80 for those days. Not only will we have the record warmth, but the wind will be especially gusty on Tuesday and Wednesday. That means the fire danger will be extremely high. It would be a good idea to postpone working or recreating outdoors with anything flammable on those days.
Gradually cooler weather will move in late in the week, but even those temperatures will still be mild.
