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.
While snow is winding down across much of Southern Colorado, gusty north winds will lead to blowing/drifting snow and poor visibility through mid-afternoon, especially in open areas. This will become less of a concern later this afternoon, as winds diminish. Only minor additional accumulations should be expected through mid-afternoon.
While some sun breaks are expected this afternoon, this won't help the temperature recovery. Temps will remain in the 20s, 30s, and low 40s.
Clearing skies, light winds, and fresh snow cover will lead to a frigid night with lows crashing into the single digits and teens.
Plenty of sunshine on Thursday will allow temps to warm into the 40s.
