A FLASH FLOOD WATCH remains in effect for all of southern Colorado throughout our evening and overnight on Tuesday. Storms will continue to be an issue, capable of producing heavy rain with very slow movement. Storms look to mainly favor north and east of areas like Colorado Springs and the Waldo Canyon area, but storms cannot be ruled out still in this area. The 11 Breaking Weather team will be monitoring conditions closely. This Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 6pm Wednesday, where another day of thunderstorms is possible. Head to the KKTV 11 Weather Tab for more information on the forecast for Wednesday and beyond.
The U.S. Senate is expected to start debate on a proposed constitutional ban that would bar same-sex marriages.
The proposal, which is being sponsored by Colorado Senator Wayne Allard, would change the constitution to state that -- quote -- "Marriage in the United States shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman."
Allard, a Republican, says he wants to prevent judges from defining marriage without input from the majority of Americans.
Last month, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved the amendment.
But its chances of passing the full Senate are slim.
Democrats and opponents of the measure say Republican leaders are pushing the amendment in an election year purely for political reasons.
Allard and Colorado Representative Marilyn Musgrave, also a Republican, sponsored the amendment in 2004, but it failed in both the House and Senate.
