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.
The Vatican says doctors are urging Pope John Paul not to speak for several days after he underwent a tracheotomy to ease a breathing crisis.
He had the procedure yesterday and the Vatican says he's now off a respirator and breathing on his own. The papal spokesman also says the tracheotomy "was not an emergency procedure."
The pope was rushed to the hospital yesterday following a relapse of the flu. It's his second trip to the hospital this month.
The spokesman says there are no signs of a lung infection.
The spokesman also says the pope had a good appetite this morning and "the post-operative situation continues regularly."
The Pope is 84 years old.
