A Flood Watch and a Winter Storm Watch are out for the entire region late Tuesday through early Thursday. Heavy rain develops Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and may put down 1”-3” in some areas. Arctic air pushes in from west to east on Wednesday with heavy sleet and snow taking over. That setup could produce several inches of accumulation. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in.
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is launching an initiative to combat sexual assault, particularly on college campuses.
Obama plans to sign a presidential memorandum Wednesday creating a task force to protect students from sexual assault.
The White House also is issuing a report that says no one in America is more at risk of being raped or assaulted than college women. The report says 1 in 5 women have been sexually assaulted at college, but only 12 percent of student victims report the assault.
The report is being released Wednesday, but the White House provided an advance copy to The Associated Press.
Obama is giving the task force 90 days to come up with recommendations for colleges to prevent and respond to sexual assault.
