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.
If anyone ever asks Delavane Diaz "What are you ... a Rhodes Scholar?", she can possibly say "yes".
That's because the Air Force Academy senior is among 32 U.S. college students selected for a Rhodes Scholarship for 2004.
The cadet from Florida is the second woman ever to hold the top position of Wing Commander at the Academy, putting her in charge of four thousand cadets.
Diaz is getting her degree in astronautical engineering with a minor in Spanish. She's also been named M.V.P. for2 years running on the Academy's varsity volleyball team.
The Rhodes Scholarship provides 2 to 3 years of study at the University of Oxford in England.
