FOGGY SATURDAY NIGHT-OMNI


IF YOU'RE HEADED OUT TONIGHT -- BE CAREFUL!

FOGGY SATURDAY NIGHT-STC


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.

Another round of fog will be possible overnight into Sunday morning, but once the fog lifts away by mid morning, we're set to see a mostly sunny sky along with unseasonably warm temperatures as highs climb back into the low to mid 80s.

For those who have been hoping for a stretch of warmer weather, this is definitely the week for you. A warm, sunny weather pattern stays locked in place through the next several days, and we may even be close to near-record warmth during the afternoons.

Highs will be in the mid 80s, and lows will only settle into the mid to upper 60s.

Isolated showers will be possible in the afternoon starting Wednesday, but rain chances should only be around 30%.

Watch for developing fog on most mornings this week, but overall, it's a nice looking forecast across Southwest Florida through the next week. Return to index of stories...

JAGGED. WILD. AND COVERED WITH SNOW.

AND WATCHED BY TROOPS LOOKING FOR ANY SUSPICIOUS TRACKS.

DESPITE THREATS FROM TERRORISTS- MEMBERS OF THE AMERICAN TEAM SAID THEY FEEL SAFE AND ARE READY TO COMPETE.

PETER FOLEY, HEAD COACH - U.S. SNOWBOARD TEAM: "I FEEL SAFE, KNOCK ON WOOD. SEEMS GREAT. PEOPLE ARE FRIENDLY."

JEREMY FORSTER: THE MOUNTAINS ARE AMAZING. THE FACILITIES ARE GREAT, EVERYONE'S BEEN REALLY FRIENDLY."

DOWN OFF THE MOUNTAIN, TEAM USA SHORT TRACK SPEED-SKATER JR CELSKI WAS TESTING THE ICE:

JR CELSKI: "FEELING GOOD, FEELING REALLY GOOD ABOUT THE ATMOSPHERE AND THE ENERGY."

THIS HAS BEEN A MONUMENTAL PROJECT FOR RUSSIA

IN 2005, THE OLYMPIC PARK WAS JUST A SWAMPY FARMLAND

BY 2010, A MERE OUTLINE

SINCE THEN, ITS GONE UP QUICKLY.

BUT EVERYTHING ISN'T QUITE DONE.

FAR FROM IT. WORKMEN HAVE LESS THAN A WEEK TO GO.

SOME HOTELS WERE JUST TODAY STILL LOADING IN FURNITURE.

AND SECURITY?

RUSSIA DENIES THERE'S ANY THREAT. BUT YOU STILL HAVE TO GO THROUGH AIRPORT STYLE CHECKS TO BOARD A TRAIN IN SOCHI.

THE TRAINS BETTER BE NICE. THE OLYMPIC RAIL LINES, TUNNELS AND ROADS COST MOST THAN 9 BILLION DOLLARS. THE FINAL TAB FOR SOCHI WILL RING IN AROUND 50 BILLION.

SO FAR IT APPEARS THE ATHLETES AND TOURISTS HAVE BEEN ABLE TO IGNORE THE CONTROVERSIES.

TOURIST: "I FEEL SAFE. IM LOVING IT. JUST LOVING IT. WHAT AN EXPERIENCE."

.AND GET EXCITED FOR THESE WINTER OLYMPICS. SPLIT BETWEEN THE MOUNTAINS AND THE SEA.
