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.
Much-needed snow is expected to fall in parts of Colorado's high country through Tuesday.
The San Juan mountains in southwest Colorado are expected to get the most snowfall, with accumulations of up to 11 inches by Tuesday. National Weather Service forecaster Bob Koopmeiners tells The Denver Post that Telluride will get the "lion's share" of the snow, but "we all need it. The state's in dire need of water."
Colorado's snowpack is about 50 to 60 percent of normal.
The Aspen area also could be looking at double-digit snow accumulations through Monday.
From around noon on Monday to Tuesday evening, snowfall along the Continental Divide could range from five to 12 inches, while Summit County ski areas could get between three and 10 inches.
