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.

BREEZY WITH MORE CLOUDS

It is a cool morning across Southwest Florida, but warmer weather is on the way today. Winds will come from the east, turning east-southeasterly at 10-15 mph with gusts near 20 mph. While it won't be as windy as yesterday, it will still be rather breezy. With more of that east to southeasterly turn on the winds, we will warm up today. Afternoon highs are headed to near 80 degrees. With more humidity coming into play we can't rule out a very spotty shower popping up this afternoon. Overnight, we'll see plenty of clouds and we won't be as cool. Expect low temperatures Friday morning to bottom out in the mid 60s with lower 60s inland.

For tomorrow, we'll have cloudy skies and even a few showers showing up by evening.

A cold front pressing its way into Southwest Florida will give scattered showers for Saturday into Sunday. Some of the latest computer guidance suggests that the rain may taper off by Sunday afternoon.so it's possible that the end of the weekend might turn out to be rain-free.

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.

BREEZY WITH MORE CLOUDS

It is a cool morning across Southwest Florida, but warmer weather is on the way today. Winds will come from the east, turning east-southeasterly at 10-15 mph with gusts near 20 mph. While it won't be as windy as yesterday, it will still be rather breezy. With more of that east to southeasterly turn on the winds, we will warm up today. Afternoon highs are headed to near 80 degrees. With more humidity coming into play we can't rule out a very spotty shower popping up this afternoon. Overnight, we'll see plenty of clouds and we won't be as cool. Expect low temperatures Friday morning to bottom out in the mid 60s with lower 60s inland.

For tomorrow, we'll have cloudy skies and even a few showers showing up by evening.

A cold front pressing its way into Southwest Florida will give scattered showers for Saturday into Sunday. Some of the latest computer guidance suggests that the rain may taper off by Sunday afternoon.so it's possible that the end of the weekend might turn out to be rain-free.

BOTTOM,

BUM.

RUMP.

THERE ARE A LOT OF DIFFERENT NAMES FOR THE REAR-END.

WHATEVER YOU CALL YOURS, IT'S IMPORTANT TO HAVE IT CHECKED AS PART OF A COLON CANCER SCREENING.

THAT'S THE IDEA BEHIND THE "LOVE YOUR BUTT" CAMPAIGN EMPHASIZING THE IMPORTANCE OF GETTING SCREENED.

BUT ONLY ABOUT HALF OF AMERICANS OLDER THAN 50 ARE GETTING THE NECESSARY TESTING.

COLON CANCER IS USUALLY VERY SLOW GROWING. Return to index of stories...


NOTHING BUT BUTTS-SOTVO


:It starts out as a benign polyp and over a period of perhaps years, it becomes cancerous. So it's slow -- with screening, we can find it early. We can either prevent the cancer from ever occuring or we can remove the early cancer and save a life.

THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY ESTIMATES THAT ABOUT 55,000 PEOPLE IN THE UNITED STATES WILL DIE OF COLON CANCER THIS YEAR.

SO PUT ASIDE THE MODESTY AND SHAKE YOUR BEHIND RIGHT ON INTO THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE AND GET SCREENED. Return to index of stories...
