A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect on Tuesday 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. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
Kicking the habit is getting a little bit easier, thanks to Colorado's Smoking Quitline.
It's a program paid for by money the state received in a multi-million dollar smoking lawsuit. In the past year, more than 9,000 Coloradans have used the Quitline to try to stop smoking. Another 2,800 used the online services. About 20% were successful, which is considered good when compared to other programs.
El Paso County got $500,000 of the tobacco settlement, money to help people stop smoking. The health department uses this money for tobacco education and prevention programs.
