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.
The decision of a Colorado Springs judge that the city does not have to offer same-sex partner benefits to employees is being appealed to the Court of Appeals.
Two lesbian couples filed the appeal Friday.
The city began offering same-sex partner benefits to employees in 2002 but discontinued them in 2003.
The plaintiffs, who no longer work for the city, claim the benefits were discontinued without due process.
