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.

"Near record heat"

It was a warm start to the week with afternoon temperatures running 10° above average for this time of year. The unseasonably warm weather will remain locked in place for the next several days, with a slight cool down to follow by early next week.

After a few patchy low clouds this morning, we'll be treated to a mix of sun and clouds during the afternoon. A southeasterly breeze will continue to pump in the humidity and the warmth as daytime highs climb into the middle 80s. In fact, a few of our inland communities are on their way to the upper 80s today. The developing west coast seabreeze will keep our beaches and coastal areas a few degrees cooler. Due to the heat and extra humidity, an isolated shower or two can't be ruled out. Any rain that develops during the day will favor areas east of I-75.

Tonight, a few patchy clouds will give way to areas of fog during the pre dawn hours. It will also be another mild and muggy night as temperatures settle into the middle to upper 60s.

A front situated to our north will slowly work its way across central Florida and stall on Wednesday. This will keep an increased chance for rain in the forecast during the afternoon and through Thursday. Daytime highs will remain warm as they return into the lower to middle 80s. Clouds will stick around through Friday before the sunshine returns for the first half of the weekend. By Sunday, we'll be tracking another front making its way down the Florida peninsula. This weather system will bring scattered showers to the area on Sunday, with another cool down in the works by early next week. Return to index of stories...

TARGET BREACH ON CAPITOL HILL-PKG


AHEAD OF TODAY'S TESTIMONY BEFORE THE SENATE JUDICIARY HEARING, TARGET'S CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER SAYS THE COMPANY WILL EARLY UP ITS DEADLINE TO PUT SMART CHIPS IN TARGET CREDIT CARDS.

TARGET NOW PLANS TO GET IT DONE ABOUT A YEAR FROM NOW -- SIX MONTHS EARLIER THAN PLANNED.

AND MONTHS BEFORE VISA AND MASTERCARD.

"They're going to be very expensive. It's going to be five hundred dollars per checkout counter all across America. Billions of dollars it's going to cost to upgrade these systems."

THE CHIPS MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR HACKERS TO USE STOLEN CREDIT CARD NUMBERS IN STORES BUT DON'T PREVENT FRAUD ONLINE.

TODAY'S HEARING IS THE SECOND OF THREE ON CAPITOL HILL INVESTIGATING THE HOLIDAY DATA BREACHES.

AT A SENATE BANKING HEARING MONDAY, LAWMAKERS PUSHED FOR COMPANIES TO NOTIFY CUSTOMERS FASTER WHEN THEIR INFORMATION'S BEEN STOLEN.

"There are state laws that require breach notification that may apply to retailers but there is no federal breach notification law."

"So there's no breach requirements across the board."

AND THEY'RE PUSHING FOR TOUGHER PENALTIES:

Illinois 1:04-1:13

"Albert Gonzalez was convicted in 2010 of stealing 40 million credit card records. He made so much money off of this he even bought his own Italian island off it."

TARGET SAYS 40 MILLION CREDIT CARD NUMBERS WERE STOLEN FROM HIS CUSTOMERS -- PLUS PERSONAL INFORMATION FROM AS MANY AS 70 MILLION MORE.

WORST WINTER TO FLY-PKG


--REPORTER PKG-AS FOLLOWS--

YET ANOTHER WINTER STORM ONCE AGAIN PROVING. WHEN SNOW FALLS. PLANES STOP FLYING.

"We found out we were canceled to six am in the morning"

IN FACT LAST MONTH WAS THE WORST JANUARY FOR FLIGHT CANCELATIONS IN YEARS.

ACCORDING TO FLIGHT TRACKING SITE FLIGHTAWARE. A STAGGERING FORTY THOUSAND U.S. FLIGHTS WERE CANCELED IN JANUARY. THAT'S FOUR TIMES MORE THAN THE PAST TWO YEARS.

NASTY WEATHER IS PARTLY TO BLAME -

LIKE THIS STORM THAT BURIED NEW YORK'S J-F-K

They said it gonna be a couple of days before the next flight to Toronto so I just booked myself a bus ticket.

AND THE ONE THAT FROZE CHICAGO'S O'HARE. GROUNDING PLANES AND FREEZING FUEL PUMPS.

"Last time I saw my luggage was in Chicago when we rechecked it. It was three days ago, it was four day, four days ago."

MORE AIRLINES ARE NOW PRE CANCELING FLIGHTS. TO AVOID FLYING IN BAD WEATHER--THAT WOULD RISK PLANES AND PASSENGERS GETTING STUCK OR SNOWED IN.

FEDERAL RULES ALSO CAUSE CANCELLATIONS.

AIRLINES DON'T WANT TO RISK PASSENGERS WAITING TOO LONG ON THE TARMAC.THAT COULD NET FINES OF MORE THAN A MILLION DOLLARS. SOME ANALYSTS ALSO BLAME THE NEW RULE REQUIRING PILOTS GET MORE REST BETWEEN SHIFTS.

Everyone is in favor of more safety and certainly passengers want their crew to be rested, but there is no question when a pilot can work fewer hours in a week, and can work fewer hours in a day between flights there are going to be more delays and cancellations.

PKG SCRIPT:

NATS -

"PUCKER UP. CIGARETTES ARE BULLIES. DON'T LET TOBACCO CONTROL YOU."

THE FDA IS LAUNCHING A NATIONAL CAMPAIGN TODAY TO REDUCE TEENAGE SMOKING.

THE 115-MILLION-DOLLAR EFFORT AIMS TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF YOUTH CIGARETTE

USERS BY AT LEAST 300,000 WITHIN 3 YEARS.

TO REACH TEENS, THE AGENCY IS APPEALING TO TWO OF THINGS THEY VALUE THE MOST

: LOSING CONTROL AND THEIR LOOKS.

NATS -

"SMOKING CAUSES WRINKLES THAT AGE YOU PREMATURELY."

THIS AD, HAS THE TAG LINE - WHAT DO CIGARETTES COST? YOUR SMOOTH SKIN.

ANOTHER HAS A YOUNG MAN PAYING FOR CIGARETTES - WITH HIS TOOTH.

NATS -

" WHAT'S A PACK OF MENTHOLS COST? YOUR TEETH."

SOT - Margaret Hamburg

"We found that these messages about their appearance, / messages about

losing control, actually resonated the most with kids."

ACCORDING TO THE FDA, MORE THAN 3200 TEENS TRY THEIR FIRST CIGARETTE EACH

DAY AND MORE THAN 700 KIDS UNDER 18 BECOME DAILY SMOKERS.

BY TARGETING KIDS AGES 12 TO 17, THE HOPE IS TO REACH THAT FUTURE GENERATION

OF SMOKERS BEFORE THEY BECOME ADDICTED.

SOT - Margaret Hamburg

"The feedback we got from the target audience, these kids, was that these

messages were understandable. They were powerful. They were meaningful. And

they made them think about smoking." Return to index of stories...

WEATHER-WX WALL


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.

"Near record heat"

It was a warm start to the week with afternoon temperatures running 10° above average for this time of year. The unseasonably warm weather will remain locked in place for the next several days, with a slight cool down to follow by early next week.

After a few patchy low clouds this morning, we'll be treated to a mix of sun and clouds during the afternoon. A southeasterly breeze will continue to pump in the humidity and the warmth as daytime highs climb into the middle 80s. In fact, a few of our inland communities are on their way to the upper 80s today. The developing west coast seabreeze will keep our beaches and coastal areas a few degrees cooler. Due to the heat and extra humidity, an isolated shower or two can't be ruled out. Any rain that develops during the day will favor areas east of I-75.

Tonight, a few patchy clouds will give way to areas of fog during the pre dawn hours. It will also be another mild and muggy night as temperatures settle into the middle to upper 60s.

A front situated to our north will slowly work its way across central Florida and stall on Wednesday. This will keep an increased chance for rain in the forecast during the afternoon and through Thursday. Daytime highs will remain warm as they return into the lower to middle 80s. Clouds will stick around through Friday before the sunshine returns for the first half of the weekend. By Sunday, we'll be tracking another front making its way down the Florida peninsula. This weather system will bring scattered showers to the area on Sunday, with another cool down in the works by early next week. Return to index of stories...

HEALTH MATTERS-ON CAM


DETERMINING WHETHER YOUR CHILD IS SICK ENOUGH TO NEED A DOCTOR VISIT CAN BE A CHALLENGE.

ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO A SORE THROAT.

MANY TIMES IT'S JUST A VIRUS- BUT IT COULD BE STREP WHICH REQUIRES MEDICATION.

IN TODAYS HEALTH MATTERS AMY OSHIER HAS TWO QUESTIONS TO HELP YOU FIND THE ANSWER. Return to index of stories...


HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


PKG:

IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR. THE COLDER WEATHER BRINGS WITH IT SORE

THROATS. IN KIDS IT CAN BE A REAL PAIN IN THE NECK.

DR. DENISE DRAGO/PEDIATRICAN

RUNS:

:33 We definitely see a lot of strep. We see a lot of just inflamed tonsils or tonsillitis, but

those two are the most common reason for sore throats.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

Being more serious than a run-of-the-mill sore throat, strep should be looked at by a

doctor. As a general rule, answering two questions may give parents some guidance in

making the call.

DR. DENISE DRAGO/PEDIATRICAN

RUNS:

:45 Strep tends to be more along the lines of 'no coughing or congestion' just really sore

throat, High fever generally above 102.

SO THE TWO QUESTIONS WOULD BE: DOES YOUR CHILD HAVE COUGH OR COLD

SYMPTOMS AND HAVE THEY HAD A FEVER IN THE LAST 24 HOURS? WHILE FEVERS ARE

A HALLMARK OF STREP INFECTIONS, COUGHS ARE NOT.

DR. DENISE DRAGO/PEDIATRICAN

RUNS:

4:34 The majority of times, if you have a fever and you don't have the other cough or cold

symptoms that go along with a normal infection, most of the time its going to be strep.

TO MAKE SURE THEY HAVE THE RIGHT DIAGNOSIS, PEDIATRICIANS PERFORM AN IN-

OFFICE TEST.

DR. DENISE DRAGO/PEDIATRICAN

RUNS:

1:53: We'll do a strep culture, a rapid test in the office and send out a confirmatory test just

to make sure. But it is definitely important in treating strep throat with antibiotics.

STREP IS MOST COMMON IN CHILDREN BETWEEN THE AGES OF 5 AND 15. ALTHOUGH

IT'S A BACTERIAL INFECTION, STEP IS CONTAGIOUS. SO PLAN ON KEEPING YOUR YOUNG

ONE HOME FROM SCHOOL.

DR. DENISE DRAGO/PEDIATRICAN

RUNS:

2:44 We say 24 hours of antibiotics, then we say you should be fever-free for about a day.

So most of the times that ends up being 1 or 2 days of school that they miss.

STREP MAY ALSO PRODUCE WHITE PATCHES IN THE THROAT AND TONSILS, BUT

DOCTOR'S SAY DON'T USE THAT AS YOUR BAROMETER. WHEN IT DOUBT- CHECK IT OUT,

WITH THE HELP OF A MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL. FOR LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM,

I'M AMY OSHIER. Return to index of stories...
