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.
Relatives and friends of the two men whose plane apparently caused Wednesday's evacuation in Washington say the plane was on its way to an air show in North Carolina.
The two were taken into custody and interviewed by authorities in Maryland, where the plane landed after a military escort.
The plane was registered to a Pennsylvania club, made up of people who fly from an airport in Lancaster County. A former club member says the plane was scheduled to be flown today by Jim Sheaffer and student pilot Troy Martin, who were supposed to take it to an air show in Lumberton, North Carolina.
Martin's wife confirms that the two men left late this morning for Lumberton. She says her husband was talking to her last night about the "no-fly zones" along the way -- and "how they were going to avoid them."
They apparently didn't do so. Officials say the plane came within three miles of the White House.
