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.
Cramped quarters for some inmates and now, the El Paso County Sheriff's Office says it may stop housing parole violators to ease overcrowding.
As of January 18th, the 2 county jails housed more than 1300 inmates, breaking the previous population record.
Parole violators are usually put in the jails while a parole board decides if they should return.
Opponents say it's a bad idea, allowing potentially dangerous criminals to be freed into local communities.
