FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA. Return to index of stories...


FIRST ALERT FORECAST-TOUCH


HOT WEATHER AHEAD

Over the next few days you will probably be turning on the air conditioning for a few hours in the afternoon. The forecast calls for a southerly flow of wind across the area which will elevate the humidity and push our temperatures to the upper 80's, or even 90 degrees, through Thursday.

The pattern will appear to be like a summer weather pattern with quiet mornings and a sea breeze in the afternoon. That will help develop a few clouds that may build up to give some of the area a brief, late day shower. The rain forecast is overall very low and the bigger "weather story" this week will be the very warm temperatures.

Expect a round of fog in a few places tomorrow morning as temperatures cool to the mid 60's. After the fog burns off it will be mostly sunny and a high temperature close to 90.

A weak front moves through the area on Thursday. This is probably NOT going to bring us any rain; however, it will likely drop the humidity and lower the temperatures for a few days. Winds will pick up by the end of the week as this weak front goes by. Return to index of stories...

"You're going to see them, there's nothing stopping that"

Just after 8 last Thursday morning, a Golden Gate Estates parent saw a panther walk across the street right next to a bus stop with children waiting nearby.

03:44:06-10 dorta

"He had posted a warning to all of us residents that he indeed saw a panther."

Fwc said they came out to investigate, but didn't find any sign of the panther or tracks. But that doesn't mean it wasn't here

00:02:48-55 Mark Lotz/FWC Panther Biologist

"There's panthers all around that area. All through golden gate estates as a matter of fact, so it wouldn't surprise me in the least."

Panther biologist Mark Lotz says while human panther interactions are rare, but if you do see one it's important not to run away.

00:01:20-29 lotz

"That could trigger that panther to start chasing you, because they are predators and things that move quickly draw their attention."

If you're at a bus stop and can't wait in a car, the best thing to do is stick together and make noise.

00:01:30-39 lotz

"Just kind of stand still, stay in a group and stay standing upright, you don't want to make yourself look small."

The bigger concern is for livestock. Panthers have been known to kill goats, sheep, chickens, even cats and small dogs. Lotz says to lock them up at night if possible.

03:47:11-19 Dorta

"An animal is going to do what an animal is going to do, he's going to survive. He's going to pick off easy prey. It is what it is"
