Film and television production in Los Angeles could help rouse the area from its economic stupor, although growth will be slow this year and next, according to a forecast scheduled to be released Wednesday by the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp. "We're looking at an economy that is poised to start to growing again in 2011," said Nancy Sidhu, chief economist of the LAEDC. The motion picture and TV production sector added 16,500 jobs in 2010, becoming one of the fastest-growing employment sectors, according to the forecast.

The spring showers of the last few days should leave town just in time to provide the type of warm and sunny weekend San Diegans have become accustomed to. A storm system drifting down the California coast is expected to bring rain through this morning, but the sun should break through by the afternoon, according to National Weather Service forecaster Wilbur Shigehara. The chance of rain this morning is 40%, dropping to 20% later in the day, he said.

The Ryder Cup weather forecast isn't good, with heavy rain and high winds expected to continue through this afternoon, when the opening ceremonies are supposed to take place. When play opens Friday, the forecast calls for wind and showers and temperatures in the mid 60s, with more wind and possible thunderstorms Saturday and clouds with, yes, possible showers Sunday. Of course, the Emerald Isle is so green because rain is commonplace.

Shares of Xerox Corp. fell after the company cut its profit forecast nearly 80% on restructuring costs and slowing technology spending. First-quarter profit will be 3 to 5 cents a share, down from an earlier forecast of 16 to 20 cents, Xerox said. Standard & Poor's and Fitch Ratings both revised their outlook for the Norwalk, Conn., company to negative, reflecting challenging economic conditions. Xerox shares fell $1, or 19%, to $4.34.

The outlook for U.S. advertising spending has brightened in the past six months, and spending now is expected to rise 6.9% this year, one of the industry's most widely followed forecasts said Wednesday. That still would mean smaller growth than the rises of 7.4% to 7.9% posted in each of the past four years and well below the double-digit increases earlier in the decade. But Robert Coen, director of forecasting for the ad agency McCann-Erickson, said growth should exceed the 6.1% rise that he projected in December for this year because national advertiser spending has surpassed his expectations and the economic climate has improved.
