A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into 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. This FLASH FLOOD WATCH will remain in effect through 6pm Wednesday. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat closely for you the next two days.
All severe weather warnings for rural southeastern Colorado Saturday night have expired. A severe thunderstorm brought wind, rain and the threat of a tornado through much of the early evening.
The tornado warning for Huerfano, Las Animas, Otero and Pueblo counties expired at 8:15 pm.
Viewers told 11 News they had heavy rain and hail during the storm. Below are some pictures sent in by Cindy Goforth, from a home off Santa Fe Drive near the Pueblo Memorial Airport.
The 11 News Weather Team is predicting warmer and drier conditions through the rest of the weekend, into early next week.
