5:02 FORECAST ON THE 2'S-WX WALL


Today's Weather Story

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.

MORNING FOG, THEN MOSTLY SUNNY

We will once again see fog forming in Southwest Florida this morning. That fog will likely linger for a little while and mix out as we head into the mid to late morning time frame. Right now it looks like the fog scenario shouldn't stick around quite as long today as it did yesterday.

By late morning to midday, we'll see mostly sunny skies and that is what we will continue with through the day. Afternoon highs will be near 80 degrees at the beaches and into the mid 80s in inland warm spots.

More cloud cover will begin to arrive as we head through the night, but there could still be some fog for you morning plans on Saturday, too. Lows tonight will be in the mid 60s and tomorrow we'll head back into the low to mid 80s. Through the day Saturday, cloud cover will continue to increase and we could even pick up a stray shower. The best chance for that stray shower will be aimed toward our deeper inland areas. Sunday looks to be a little sunnier without much change in temperatures. Then into next week, we'll see another storm system that will bring the chance for some showers by Tuesday. Return to index of stories...

MALAYSIA AIRLINES UPDATE-PKG


U.S. and Australian search planes again descended on a remote part of the

southern Indian Ocean -- about 15-hundred miles off the Australian

coast.

They're looking for these objects thought to be debris from Flight 370.

It's a daunting task.

SOT Tony Abbott, Australian PM

"IT'S ABOUT THE MOST INACCESSABLE SPOT THAT YOU COULD IMAGINE ON THE FACE OF

THE EARTH. BUT IF THERE IS ANYTHING DOWN THERE, WE WILL FIND IT. WE OWE IT

TO THE FAMILIES OF THOSE PEOPLE TO DO NO LESS. "

Parts of the ocean are more than 2 miles deep or 14 Empire State

Buildings piled end to end.

Today the teams took advantage of better weather, after battling clouds and

rain on Thursday.

SOT Flight Lieutenant Chris Birrer, Royal Australian Air Force

"WE CAN RELATE TO THE AIR CREW OF MH370 AND THE PASSENGERS AND CREW, BEING

FELLOW AIR CREW. SO WE'RE HIGHLY-MOTIVATED TO GO OUT AND CONTINUE SEARCHING

AS LONG AS REQUIRED."

For the families and friends of the 239 people onboard -- the wait is

agonizing.

SOT Sarah Bajc

"I BELIEVE PHILLIP IS STILL ALIVE AND IF THAT IS PART OF THE PLANE, THEN

THAT KIND OF DASHES THAT HOPE."

This morning, new questions about why it took so long to move the search

into the southern Indian Ocean.

A satellite company tells ABC News back on March 9 it had an "initial idea"

that the search should move south.

The Malaysians were given the data. But it took them several days to refocus

the search.

Weather Trends

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.

MORNING FOG, THEN MOSTLY SUNNY

We will once again see fog forming in Southwest Florida this morning. That fog will likely linger for a little while and mix out as we head into the mid to late morning time frame. Right now it looks like the fog scenario shouldn't stick around quite as long today as it did yesterday.

By late morning to midday, we'll see mostly sunny skies and that is what we will continue with through the day. Afternoon highs will be near 80 degrees at the beaches and into the mid 80s in inland warm spots.

More cloud cover will begin to arrive as we head through the night, but there could still be some fog for you morning plans on Saturday, too. Lows tonight will be in the mid 60s and tomorrow we'll head back into the low to mid 80s. Through the day Saturday, cloud cover will continue to increase and we could even pick up a stray shower. The best chance for that stray shower will be aimed toward our deeper inland areas. Sunday looks to be a little sunnier without much change in temperatures. Then into next week, we'll see another storm system that will bring the chance for some showers by Tuesday. Return to index of stories...
