A FLASH FLOOD WATCH remains in effect for all of southern Colorado throughout our evening and overnight on Tuesday. Storms will continue to be an issue, capable of producing heavy rain with very slow movement. Storms look to mainly favor north and east of areas like Colorado Springs and the Waldo Canyon area, but storms cannot be ruled out still in this area. The 11 Breaking Weather team will be monitoring conditions closely. This Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 6pm Wednesday, where another day of thunderstorms is possible. Head to the KKTV 11 Weather Tab for more information on the forecast for Wednesday and beyond.
Businesses across the state are trying to rearrange schedules and shifts to plan for a large absence of workers on Monday. Tens of thousands of people are expected to attend the "National Day of Action" rallies for immigration.
For example, in Colorado Springs, a local Hispanic meat market will close its doors Monday. ConAgra's turkey plant in Longmont is shutting down production on Monday. In Greeley, the Swift meat plant will announce schedules Friday after many requested for time off on Monday.
Some employers say compared to rallies several weeks ago, they expect a greater impact this time with all attention focused on a single day for immigrant workers.
It's a day that's important to people like Irma Bustimante, a citizen of Mexico who came to the U.S. when she was 18. She says, "We didn't have any possibilities over there, so that's why we came. To work."
Those organizing rallies are asking people to wear white, as a sign of solidarity.
In Colorado Springs, the National Day of Action rally will be at Memorial Park from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. In Pueblo, the rally will be at Minnequa Park from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
