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.
Mostly clear skies tonight and cold temperaures will allow for all the slush on the roads to freeze up. While the main roads will be fine, sidestreets will be slick, with plenty of black ice. Use caution if you have to travel, as black ice will be a problem for many areas.
"I'm pretty tough. I can handle it," says eight-year-old Brock Bowers. He was shoveling snow in front of his house in Monument, trying to create a parking space for a friend who is coming over.
Out east in Falcon, it is slushy and slick. "My feet are soaking wet," says Emrald Taylor. She's been outside all day at the local Safeway, gathering grocery carts left in the parking lot.
While Monday will be cool and breezy, it should be a decent day. Much milder weather will be arriving for the middle of the week.
