6:02 FIRST ALERT FORECAST ON THE 2'S-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.

After quite the soggy Saturday, we're in store for some much nicer weather today in the wake of a cool front that moved through during the overnight.

Temperatures will be noticeably cooler, and the air will feel more crisp; expect our temperatures to only peak in the mid to upper 70s during the afternoon.

Sunshine will also be prevalent throughout the day, and combined with the cooler temps and lower humidity, it's truly going to be a sensational Sunday.

Winds will also be a factor in our weather today as a stiff northerly breeze gusts up to 20-30 mph.

Due to the strong northerly winds, a small craft advisory is posted for the coastal waters through the morning hours.

Tonight will be the coolest night of the next seven as temperatures drop to the low to mid 50s under a mostly clear sky.

The rest of our week is shaping up nicely; it'll be very spring like and quite warm with plenty of sunshine and highs in the mid 80s.

Our weather will also stay very dry through the next seven days. Return to index of stories...

BEARDS ARE BACK-PKG


THERE'S A BEARD.

THAT'S A BEARD.

BEARD.

BEARD.

THAT'S. UH. YEAH.

WHETHER OF THE ARTISANAL, DESIGNER, OR WOODLAND VARIETY? BEARDS ARE BACK.

BUT WHAT IF YOU'VE ALWAYS WANTED FACIAL HAIR BUT CAN'T MANAGE MORE THAN A FEW WHISKERS?

Basically we took 1500 grafts all from the back of the scalp and we transferred them to these different regions.

A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, MOST PLASTIC SURGEONS LIKE DR. JAMIL ASARIA ONLY PERFORMED THE ODD FACIAL HAIR TRANSPLANT TO COVER A BURN OR A SCAR.

NOT ANYMORE.

It's grown from something I would do 2-3 procedures a year to something that we're now doing on a weekly basis.

ONE OF HIS LATEST PATIENTS?

RUDY IONIDES.

FOR YEARS HE TRIED TO GROW A BEARD BUT IT WAS ALWAYS. INCOMPLETE.

Lacking primarily up here.

SO, A 12-HOUR OPERATION.

A WEEK OF SWELLING AND REDNESS, ANOTHER WEEK BEFORE COULD SHAVE AND WELL, VOILA.

Being able to grow a beard is fantastic! There is definitely a trend towards having beards nowadays.

DEPENDING ON HOW MANY FOLLICLES YOU NEED, IT CAN COST ANYWHERE BETWEEN 5 AND 15 THOUSAND DOLLARS.

WORTH THE INVESTMENT?

I don't like beards because they get all wiry and you can get food in them

Gives you something to stroke. It's something to grab onto

FORGET THE STREETERS.

LET'S GO TO THE REAL EXPERTS.

It wouldn't fall under its own mass?

FOUR OF THE MORE HIRSUTE MEMBERS OF THE TORONTO FACIAL HAIR CLUB.

IS IT. CHEATING?

THEY'RE ANSWER SURPRISED ME.

If they need that, if they want that, that's great, I support them.

A YEAR FROM NOW, THESE BEARDS WILL BE HEADING TO AUSTRIA FOR THE WORLD BEARD AND MUSTACHE CHAMPIONSHIPS.

AND, THEY SAY, THEY'RE ALWAYS WILLING TO ADD A NEW MEMBER TO THE TEAM, REGARDLESS OF WHERE THEIR HAIR HAILED FROM.

THOUGH OF COURSE THERE'S BEEN NO RULING ON THE ADMISSIBILITY OF "BOOSTED" BEARDS. Return to index of stories...

MISSING PLANE-TRX VO PLASMA


SHIPS HAVE COLLECTED SEVERAL OBJECTS IN THE NEW SEARCH ZONE FOR MALAYSIA AIRLINES FLIGHT 370.

BUT SO FAR THERE IS NO CONFIRMATION ON THOSE OBJECTS THIS MORNING.

IF THEY ARE FROM FLIGHT 370, INVESTIGATORS COULD TRY TO RECONSTRUCT THE PLANE BACK ON LAND.

ALEXANDRA FIELD REPORTS. Return to index of stories...


MISSING PLANE-PKG


PICKING UP THE PIECES

PUTTING THEM TOGETHER

IT'S BEEN DONE BY CRASH INVESTIGATORS BEFORE.

THE QUESTION IS--IN THE MYSTERY OF MALAYSIA AIRLINES FLIGHT 370 - WILL IT BE DONE AGAIN.

You've got to get salvage vessels out into the area that have the kind of grappling equipment that can lift potentially large pieces of airplane, not only off the surface of the water, but if need be, drop down cables long enough to reach the wreckage at 12,000 feet.

JULY 1996-TWA FLIGHT 800 CRASHES JUST 8 MILES OFF THE COAST OF LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK--IN WATERS ONLY 200 FEET DEEP.

INVESTIGATORS SPOT PIECES OF THE BOEING 747 RIGHT AWAY, BUT IT STILL TAKES THREE DAYS TO FIND THE BULK OF THE WRECKAGE.

AFTER FINDING 97 PERCENT OF THE PLANE - CRASH EXPERTS REASSEMBLE IT IN A LONG ISLAND HANGAR.

You can literally start placing pieces of the aircraft back together so you can see how they relate to each other, how the impact would have related.

Is that kind of reconstruction still necessary?

Well, there's obviously debate about that.

THAT'S BECAUSE DATA RECORDERS--LIKE THE ONE ON FLIGHT 370-ARE NOW MORE SOPHISTICATED.

THE OLDER MODEL ABOARD TWA FLIGHT 800 COULD RECORD ONLY 18 INDICATORS. INVESTIGATORS NEEDED TO REASSEMBLE THE PLANE DEBRIS BECAUSE THE DATA GAVE ONLY A PARTIAL VIEW OF WHAT HAD HAPPENED ON BOARD AT THE TIME OF THE CRASH.

Essentially, speed, altitude, heading so it was not that helpful in determining what the probable cause was.

THE MISSING DATA RECORDER FROM FLIGHT 370 CAPTURES 82 SEPARATE INDICATORS--SIGNIFICANTLY MORE INFORMATION. BUT WILL IT BE ENOUGH?

If there's something conclusive on the 82 parameters that says the engines quit or there was a fire extinguisher that went off, things like that, than that would narrow the accident down, they might not have to reconstruct the entire aircraft.

INSTEAD INVESTIGATORS COULD CHOOSE TO RECOVER A FEW KEY PIECES AND HOPE THEY REVEAL THE REST OF THE PUZZLE. Return to index of stories...


DEBRIS IS A JELLY FISH-OC

6:42 FIRST ALERT FORECAST ON THE 2'S-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.

After quite the soggy Saturday, we're in store for some much nicer weather today in the wake of a cool front that moved through during the overnight.

Temperatures will be noticeably cooler, and the air will feel more crisp; expect our temperatures to only peak in the mid to upper 70s during the afternoon.

Sunshine will also be prevalent throughout the day, and combined with the cooler temps and lower humidity, it's truly going to be a sensational Sunday.

Winds will also be a factor in our weather today as a stiff northerly breeze gusts up to 20-30 mph.

Due to the strong northerly winds, a small craft advisory is posted for the coastal waters through the morning hours.

Tonight will be the coolest night of the next seven as temperatures drop to the low to mid 50s under a mostly clear sky.

The rest of our week is shaping up nicely; it'll be very spring like and quite warm with plenty of sunshine and highs in the mid 80s.

Our weather will also stay very dry through the next seven days. Return to index of stories...
