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.
A High Wind Warning will remain in effect for many areas west of I-25, through tonight. The greatest threat for damaging wind will be for elevations above 9000 feet, where wind gusts could exceed 75 mph. The strongest gusts in Colorado Springs will be restricted to the west side, where speeds could reach 50-55mph.
At lower elevations along and immediately east of I-25, the wind will be less. However gusts over 45 mph will be possible, so it will still be a pretty wind day.
The gusty wind will likely remain an issue into tonight, especially for areas along and west of I-25.
