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.

"Great weather continues"

What a way to start the week! Lots of sunshine, low humidity, and afternoon highs in the low 80s. Our nice weather pattern will hold in place for the next day or two, with increasing rain chances by late Wednesday.

Our morning will get off to a cool start with temperatures ranging from the middle 50s north of the river, to lower 60s south. Sunny skies will prevail, but we may see a few low clouds and a patch or two of fog develop deep inland. This afternoon, just a few clouds will mix in with our sunshine and daytime highs will return to the lower 80s. Humidity levels will also be tolerable, making for a comfortable day across Southwest Florida.

Tonight, mostly clear skies will continue and temperatures won't be quite as cool as they settle into the lower 60s area wide.

The area of high pressure that has controlled our weather will begin to weaken and as a result rain chances will be on the rise. We'll keep a mix of sun and clouds in the forecast on Wednesday with temperatures climbing into the lower 80s. A few afternoon showers will also be possible as they push deeper inland through the day. Another storm system to our west will aim more moisture toward the Florida peninsula, with scattered showers and storms developing late Wednesday night and into early Thursday morning. In the wake of this frontal passage, a much cooler and drier airmass will settle across the state. Some forecast models are hinting at overnight lows in the middle 40s by Friday morning, with highs in the low 70s during the day. This will set the stage for a beautiful weekend with lots of sunshine and low humidity. Return to index of stories...

SHIRLEY TEMPLE-PKG


For a decade in the 1930's Shirley Temple was the biggest little thing to

hit the motion picture screen.

There was something about her energy and optimism something about her

golden curlsdimpled smile and twinkling eyes that helped people in the midst

of the Great Depression forget their problems and become absorbed in hers.

Nats

"Heidi"

"crying.grandfather.I'll never see you again."

Shirley Temple started dancing at two and acting at three, by the time she

was five she was stealing the show:

Nats "baby take a bow"

"I go where you go.any place will do"

Before filming a scene her mother would tell her "Sparkle, Shirley, Sparkle"

and she did dancing and singing her way through hit.

Nats "the littlest rebel"

In 1934 Shirley Temple was awarded a special miniature Oscar for her

outstanding contribution to the silver screen:

"Oh, thank you very much Mommy may I go home now laughter

For three straight years she lead the box officea drink was named after her,

But Shirley Temple would leave that marriage and her Hollywood

careermarrying a San Francisco businessman and entering the world of

politics

child star:

ANDREW SPENCER REPORTS Return to index of stories...


ATLANTA WX PREPS-PKG


NUMEROUS STORIES FLOODED OUT OF THE ATLANTA AREA, TWO WEEKS AGO, OF COMMUTERS STUCK IN TRAFFIC FOR 20 HOURS, PEOPLE LEFT WITH NO OPTION BUT TO ABANDON THEIR CARS, AND PEOPLE STRANDED AND SLEEPING ON THE FLOOR OF LOCAL BUSINESSES.

THIS TIME, MANY OF THEM AREN'T TAKING ANY CHANCES.

"Better to be safe than sorry."

.THE SHELVES OF GROCERY STORES CLEARED AS PEOPLE MADE A RUN ON SUPPLIES, PLANNING TO SPEND THE WEEK STUCK INDOORS.

"Everything was already gone. There was no fruit. There were no veggies. It was kind of crazy."

.AND TWO WEEKS AFTER JUST A FEW INCHES OF SNOW BROUGHT ONE OF THE COUNTRY'S LARGEST, MOST-POPULATED METRO AREAS TO A GRINDING HALT, CITY AND STATE OFFICIALS AREN'T TAKING CHANCES, EITHER.

"I'm not going to make any pre-judgments. I think we're just gonna get out here and flat out let our work speak for ourselves."

GOVERNOR NATHAN DEAL JOINED THE MEDIA AS HE TOURED A DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION FACILITY, MONDAY, EXPLAINING SOME OF WHAT IS GOING INTO THE PREPARATIONS.

"We will not be treating every lane on the interstate. The goal will be to keep two lanes open and operational."

CREWS ARE READY TO BRINE, SALT, AND SAND THE ROADS, BUT OFFICIALS SAY THEY'RE NOT GOING TO TRY AND KEEP EVERY LANE OF TRAFFIC OPEN.

THE GEORGIA HIGHWAY PATROL IS ALSO TELLING TRUCK DRIVERS TO STAY OUT OF ATLANTA UNLESS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY AND STICK TO THE INTERSTATE LOOP AROUND THE CITY.

EVEN GEORGIA POWER IS SET UP IN ITS STORM CENTER, PREPARING FOR THE WORST AHEAD OF THIS WEEK'S WINTER STORMS AND HOPING FOR THE BEST.

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.

"Great weather continues"

What a way to start the week! Lots of sunshine, low humidity, and afternoon highs in the low 80s. Our nice weather pattern will hold in place for the next day or two, with increasing rain chances by late Wednesday.

Our morning will get off to a cool start with temperatures ranging from the middle 50s north of the river, to lower 60s south. Sunny skies will prevail, but we may see a few low clouds and a patch or two of fog develop deep inland. This afternoon, just a few clouds will mix in with our sunshine and daytime highs will return to the lower 80s. Humidity levels will also be tolerable, making for a comfortable day across Southwest Florida.

Tonight, mostly clear skies will continue and temperatures won't be quite as cool as they settle into the lower 60s area wide.

The area of high pressure that has controlled our weather will begin to weaken and as a result rain chances will be on the rise. We'll keep a mix of sun and clouds in the forecast on Wednesday with temperatures climbing into the lower 80s. A few afternoon showers will also be possible as they push deeper inland through the day. Another storm system to our west will aim more moisture toward the Florida peninsula, with scattered showers and storms developing late Wednesday night and into early Thursday morning. In the wake of this frontal passage, a much cooler and drier airmass will settle across the state. Some forecast models are hinting at overnight lows in the middle 40s by Friday morning, with highs in the low 70s during the day. This will set the stage for a beautiful weekend with lots of sunshine and low humidity. Return to index of stories...


IUD COMEBACK-VO PLASMA


HEALTH NEWS FOR WOMEN ON BIRTH CONTROL.

FOR YEARS, I-U-D'S GOT A BAD RAP - THEY WERE LINKED TO INFECTIONS, FERTILITY PROBLEMS, EVEN DEATH.

TODAY THESE DEVICES ARE RE-DESIGNED - AND DOCTORS CALL THEM ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE FORMS OF BIRTH CONTROL.

DOREEN GENTZLER REPORTS. Return to index of stories...


IUD COMEBACK-CLIP PKG


"This is my third IUD."

42-YEAR-OLD KESHIA JACKSON SAYS BIRTH CONTROL PILLS JUST WEREN'T FOR HER. SO SHE OPTED FOR AN INTRAUTERINE DEVICE. A SMALL T-SHAPED PIECE OF PLASTIC THAT'S IMPLANTED IN THE UTERUS.

"I was not that great of a patient in terms of sticking to a calendar or a time schedule for taking the pill. ANd the IUD just fit my schedule more conveniently."

DOCTORS SAY. THEY'RE MEETING LOTS OF PATIENTS LIKE JACKSON. WOMEN WHO HAVE TROUBLE WITH ORAL CONTRACEPTION BECAUSE OF SIDE EFFECTS OR PROBLEMS REMEMBERING TO TAKE THEM. SO AFTER YEARS OF SAFETY WARNINGS, THEY'RE USING IUDS AGAIN.

"there are a lot of women who's initial reaction to hearing about IUD's is like - oh, I don't want that."

GYNECOLOGIST DR. ELLEN WHITAKER SAYS THE OLDER I-U-DS WERE LINKED TO A HIGHER RISK OF PELVIC INFECTIONS THAT OFTEN CAUSED SERIOUS COMPLICATIONS, INCLUDING INFERTILITY AND DEATH.

BUT NOW THE DEVICES HAVE BEEN REDESIGNED AND NEWER MODELS, LIKE THE POPULAR BRAND MIRENA, HAVE SO FAR PROVEN TO BE SAFE AND HAVE LESS SIDE EFFECTS COMPARED TO OTHER FORMS OF CONTRACEPTION.

"the amount of hormone getting to the rest of the body is pretty minimal. therefore, it doesn't have those effects like some women have on things like birth control pills."

I-U-DS ARE IMPLANTED DIRECTLY INTO THE UTERUS. THE DEVICE EMITS EITHER COPPER OR HORMONES SIMILAR TO WHAT'S IN BIRTH CONTROL PILLS.

THEY CAN LAST ANYWHERE FROM 3 TO 10 YEARS AND BE REMOVED BY YOUR DOCTOR AT ANY TIME.

"one of the reasons why they're so effective is because it gets rid of that human error part. Women forget to take pills. They forget to get their refills. they forget to go to their doctor for routine checks and get it re-prescribed."

DOCTORS SAY THERE ARE STILL RISKS WITH THE NEWER IUDS, THOUGH THESE ARE RARE. THEY INCLUDE INFECTION OR EVEN PUNCTURE OF THE UTERUS.

ALSO SAY, I-U-DS CAN BE MORE EXPENSIVE THAN PILLS BECAUSE OF THE COST OF IMPLANTING IT.

BUT FOR PATIENTS LIKE KESHIA JACKSON, THE BENEFIT OF RELIABLE BIRTH CONTROL IS PRICELESS.

"you don't have to think about the product. you know that it's working." Return to index of stories...
