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.
A national touring memorial to soldiers killed in Iraq is coming to Colorado Springs this week, but the City Council says it undermines soldiers.
The nationally-known Eyes Wide Open exhibit features a pair of boots for every U.S. casualty. The exhibit's Internet site says the purpose is to explore the cost and consequence of war.
Despite weeks of lobbying from backers of the exhibit asking for a city resolution of support, Council declined. Mayor Lionel Rivera says he would rather the country focus on fighting terrorism than getting out of Iraq.
Organizers are holding the exhibit at Colorado College instead of a city park.
The Eyes Wide Open display is due in Colorado Springs Thursday and Friday.
