A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect at NOON and last through MIDNIGHT from most of Southern Colorado. Scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain once again. Burn scars and areas that saw heavy rain yesterday will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
Despite recent layoffs and other economic setbacks, a new study indicates that Colorado Springs businesses may be in a "hiring" mood. The latest Manpower Employment Outlook Survey finds that 40% of companies interviewed plan to hire more workers between July and September.
This means Colorado Springs has one of the top ten best job market outlooks in the nation for the third quarter, according to Manpower spokesperson Carmen Molitor.
Manpower expects the most jobs will be in areas of Durable and Non-Durable Goods Manufacturing, Transportation/Public Utilities, Wholesale/Retail Trades and Services.
