The National Weather Service is watching rainfall on the Waldo Canyon burn scar Saturday night, according to a significant weather advisory issued just before 8 p.m.

At sunset on Saturday, an omniously black storm barreled down on western El Paso County, but it is not expected to dump more than .15 inches of rain on the vulnerable burnscar landscape, the advisory said.

The Weather Service office in Pueblo does not anticipate flooding, as the bulk of the rain fell on the scar's southern end. The storm is expected to remain over the area until around 9 p.m.
