Locally heavy rain will remain possible overnight, with any showers and storms. Areas likely to see additional heavy rain will likely be east of I-25 and along HWY 50 from Canon City eastward. Remember, a Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 6pm Wednesday, where another day of thunderstorms is possible. Head to the KKTV 11 Weather Tab for more information on the forecast for Wednesday and beyond.
While heavy rain is no longer occurring on the burn scar, additional runoff is occurring. This could lead to debris on roads and swollen creeks and streams in the area.
At this time, there are no reports of life threatening flash flooding. We will continue to monitor the situation closely.
Here are some basic tips for flash flood safety:
-Turn around, don’t drown
-Don’t drive around barricades
-2 feet of water can float a car
-Stay away from electrical wires
-6” of water can sweep a person away
-Don’t play in flood waters.
Meteorologist Brian Bledsoe is particularly concerned about heavy rains washing down through the Waldo Canyon burn scar.
