A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect at NOON and last through MIDNIGHT from most of Southern Colorado. Scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain once again. Burn scars and areas that saw heavy rain yesterday will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
More Fort Carson soldiers are getting ready to head to Iraq this week. A group of 35 soldiers is scheduled to leave the Army post near Colorado Springs to replace soldiers who are retiring, rotating into new assignments or headed to school.
Another 35 to 50 members of the Third Brigade Combat Team will leave in the coming weeks. Soldiers have been training at a mock city on post recently, preparing for different urban combat scenarios.
