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.
The class of 2007 has begun the second half of basic cadet training at the Air Force Academy.
On Monday morning, 1,250 cadets marched into Jack's Valley. The 5-mile journey began on the terrazzo and wound its way to the northern portion of the academy's military reservation, near the north gate.
At Jack's Valley, the cadets will build physical strength, teamwork, and leadership skills. Academy Commandant of Cadets Brig. Gen. Johnny Weida says, the march is more than just a tradition. "This is an intro for them into what it means to be an expeditionary air force. To go out and live in Tent City and be challenged by physical events."
The cadets will be in training in Jack's Valley for the next two weeks.
