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.
A federal program that helps military spouses in Colorado and other states with job training, placement, tuition and child care is in jeopardy.
Mason Bishop, the U.S. Labor Department's deputy assistant secretary for employment and training, says the department has told program administrators that the grant money won't available because it comes from a pool of money meant for emergencies.
The program grew from an effort in the late 1990s to provide job training for people in the military. Since 2001, the department estimates it has spent about $90 million for military spouses through the National Emergency Grant program.
