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.
ADDITIONAL Snowfall Potential Through Early This Morning:
2-5": Palmer Lake, Monument, Black Forest, Peyton, Calhan, Limon, Castle Rock, Denver...Some areas in Douglas and Elbert County could see locally higher amounts.
1-3": Woodland Park, Air Force Academy, Falcon, far northeast Colorado Springs.
Tr.-1": Stetson Hills, Cimarron Hills, Rockrimmon, and this will be true for the northern portions of those neighborhoods.
Strong northerly winds will continue to produce poor visibility and a lot of blowing and drifting in rural areas. Dangerous travel conditions will prevail through the morning for many communities north and east of Colorado Springs all the way to Denver.
The storm not be completely done with the Palmer Divide and Denver Metro Area until midday today.
Quiet but cool weather can be expected the rest of this weekend.
