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.
An attorney for terror suspect Najibullah Zazi says he's not aware of a claim that his client had contact with senior al-Qaida officials.
Arthur Folsom says Zazi has told investigators he'd met with a number of people while in Pakistan. Folsom says Zazi "may well have talked to someone at a coffee shop who had some type of connection he wasn't aware of."
Folsom says prosecutors have mischaracterized comments Zazi made after he voluntarily agreed to meet before his arrest last month. Folsom says those comments have "been wildly exaggerated or blown out of proportion."
Zazi, a Colorado airport shuttle driver, is accused of plotting a bombing in New York. U.S. intelligence officials tell The Associated Press he had contacts with al-Qaida that went nearly all the way to the top.
