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.
Rain and snow showers will be winding down from south to north this afternoon. An additional 1 to 3 inches of wet snow accumulation will be possible over Northern El Paso County and Teller County before it's all said and done. Roads will remain slushy and wet this afternoon in this area, so be sure to drive with caution. Showers will move north of the area by later this afternoon. It will remain breezy and raw this afternoon with temps staying in the 30s, 40s, and 50s.
The sky should clear enough to allow temperatures to drop below freezing tonight, so be sure to bring in plants and drain your sprinkler manifold.
Sunday is looking cool but mainly dry with highs in the 50s and low 60s.
Some great fall weather is expected next week.
