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.

NICE AND WARM WEEK AHEAD

Quiet weather returns for several days this week. The forecast tonight calls for partly cloudy skies becoming mostly clear by the morning. Temperatures will drop through the 60's this evening and land in the mid and upper 50's along the coast with mid and lower 50's inland. No rain tonight.

Tomorrow's weather looks mainly sunny and warm. Highs on Tuesday should get to the lower 80s' and skies will feature a few passing clouds during the day. Again tomorrow, no rain is expected.

The extended outlook calls for more warm and quiet weather through the end of the week. The daytime highs should be in the mid 80's each day and overnight lows will be in the mid 60's. A trend toward cloudier skies will be noted this coming weekend, but rain chances stay pretty low through Sunday. The long-range outlook calls for rain next Monday.

MISSING JET-VOTOPS


The mystery of the missing Malaysian Airlines flight has yet to produce

any definitive answers about where the plane went down.

But Australia's Prime Minister says they are committed to continuing the

hunt despite mounting costs.and today, the former Australian defense chief

takes on the challenge of leading the new Joint Agency Coordination Center.

ABC's Lana Zak has the latest.

SCRIPT:

THE BLACK-BOXES OF MALAYSIAN FLIGHT 370 HAVE ABOUT 6 DAYS OF BATTERY LIFE

LEFT, CREATING NEW PRESSURE ON RESCUERS TO FIND THOSE HOMING PINGS BEFORE

THEY ARE SILENCED FOREVER.

sot

Tony Abbott/Australian PM

all of the technical mastery that we have is being applied and brought to

bear here -

Australia IS INTENSIFYING THEIR SEARCH WITH A SPECIAL SHIP EQUIPPED WITH

HIGH-TECH black box detectors.

SO MANY TIMES OCEAN DEBRIS HAS BEEN SPOTTED AND BELIEVED TO BE REMNANTS OF

THE PLANE, ONLY TO DISCOVER LATER IT IS ANOTHER FALSE LEAD. THE LATEST,

THOSE ORANGE OBJECTS PULLED FROM THE INDIAN OCEAN. IT TURNS OUT, IT IS JUST

OLD FISHING GEAR.

THE PROBLEM IS FUNDAMENTALLY THE MASSIVE SIZE OF THE SEARCH AREA--

SOT/CAPTAIN MARK MATTHEWS, US NAVY

It all depends upon how effective we are at reducing that search area right

now the search area is basically the size of the indian ocean. which would

take an untenable amount of time to search

IT IS NOW MORE THAN THREE WEEKS SINCE THE PLANE WENT MISSING WITH 239 PEOPLE

ABOARD. RELATIVES ARE EXPRESSING GREAT FRUSTRATION--

NATS UP:

man speaking, UPSOUND:

THIS MAN DEMANDS MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE LATEST ON THE SEARCH AND WHAT

THEY ARE FINDING--AND FAILING THAT--HE DEMANDS THE MALAYSIAN PRIME MINISTER

RETRACT THE ASSESSMENT THAT THERE ARE NO SURVIVORS. AT THIS POINT, THERE

ARE STILL NO CONCRETE

ANSWERS.

LANA ZAK ON CAMERA:

THE AUSTRALIAN PRIME MINISTER promised to increase the magnitude of

operations Adding "If this mystery is solvable, we will solve it."
