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.
Air Force Academy superintendent, Lieutenant General John Rosa, says the Academy needs more help from Congress to boost it's minority enrollment.
About 75% of the students at the Academy are Congressionally appointed.
Rosa says representatives in high minority, inner city districts offer few, if any, prospective cadets.
Minorities make up about 33% of the nation's population but only about 20% of the latest incoming class at the Academy.
