A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect this 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. This FLASH FLOOD WATCH will remain in effect through 6pm Wednesday. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat closely for you the next two days.
Two men and two women will start arriving this week to take over top leadership roles at the Air Force Academy here in Colorado Springs. They will replace four leaders who were reassigned following criticism over how the academy has handled reports of sex assaults.
But, female active duty and retired commanders say not to expect the new female leaders to be any more empathetic to the problems of women in uniform than then are for those of men. They say the problems at the Air Force go beyond gender. In fact, one of the top leaders who was reassigned was a woman.
