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.
About 35 reservists with the 302nd Airlift Wing head to the Middle East.
They are deploying in support of U.S. Central Command operations.
Saturday's deployment is the wing's 15 deployment since being activated in August of last year, and about 450 reservists from the unit have been mobilized.
The 302nd's mission is to train, equip and employ airlift forces worldwide.
