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.

"Sunny and dry stretch continues"

The high and mid level clouds that made their way across Southwest Florida yesterday kept temperatures a few degrees cooler as they topped out in the upper 70s to lower 80s. Now that the clouds have faded and moved east, we're on our way to a big warm up with more sunshine over the next few days.

Sunny skies will prevail throughout the mid day hours, and temperatures will be on the rise throughout the afternoon. Expect daytime highs to be a bit warmer today as they return to the middle 80s under sunny skies. Temperatures will be slightly cooler along the beaches and coastal areas as they top out near 80°.

Mostly clear skies will remain in the forecast tonight with comfortable conditions. Temperatures will also be seasonable as they dip into the lower 60s in town.

High pressure will rule our weather over the next several days, keeping us under a tranquil pattern. Our skies will stay mostly to partly sunny through the end of the week with mainly dry weather. Winds will veer to the east and southeast allowing the warmth and humidity to move in. Daytime highs will climb into the middle 80s by mid week, with morning lows in the middle 60s. In fact by the end of the week, temperatures will soar into the upper 80s. The weekend right now is looking good, with our next chance for rain on the map by early next week.

WHEN HIS WIFE WAS PREGNANT HE WANTED TO LEARN ABOUT CARING FOR NEWBORNS, BUT SAYS HE WASN'T ALLOWED IN BREASTFEEDING CLASSES.

SO, WHEN IT CAME TIME FOR 2 AM FEEDING.

We had a lot of issues and I did not know how to help. I felt frustrated, confused and helpless. I know if I felt that way there are other fathers out there facing similar struggle.

THAT'S HOW PROJECT BREAST-FEEDING WAS BORN.

THE CLARKSVILLE DAD WAS SURPRISED BY HOW MANY PEOPLE WANTED TO TAKE PHOTOS FOR THE CAMPAIGN.

I'm in a military town - a lot of the guys who have posed are active or retired military. found that once I started to other dads a lot of them felt the way I did.

HECTOR SAYS THE GOAL IS TO NOT JUST TO GET PEOPLE TALKING -- BUT TO ENGAGE AND EDUCATE DADS.

HE ALSO HOPES THE PICTURES HELP TACKLE ANY STIGMA ASSOCIATED WITH PUBLIC BREAST-FEEDING.

WEATHER-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.

"Sunny and dry stretch continues"

The high and mid level clouds that made their way across Southwest Florida yesterday kept temperatures a few degrees cooler as they topped out in the upper 70s to lower 80s. Now that the clouds have faded and moved east, we're on our way to a big warm up with more sunshine over the next few days.

Sunny skies will prevail throughout the mid day hours, and temperatures will be on the rise throughout the afternoon. Expect daytime highs to be a bit warmer today as they return to the middle 80s under sunny skies. Temperatures will be slightly cooler along the beaches and coastal areas as they top out near 80°.

Mostly clear skies will remain in the forecast tonight with comfortable conditions. Temperatures will also be seasonable as they dip into the lower 60s in town.

High pressure will rule our weather over the next several days, keeping us under a tranquil pattern. Our skies will stay mostly to partly sunny through the end of the week with mainly dry weather. Winds will veer to the east and southeast allowing the warmth and humidity to move in. Daytime highs will climb into the middle 80s by mid week, with morning lows in the middle 60s. In fact by the end of the week, temperatures will soar into the upper 80s. The weekend right now is looking good, with our next chance for rain on the map by early next week.

HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


PKG:

EVERY YEAR IN THE US MORE THAN 3-QUARTERS OF A MILLION PEOPLE

SUFFER A STROKE. JENNIFER LIN NEVER THOUGHT SHE'D BE ONE OF THEM.

JENNIFER LIN/STROKE SURVIVOR

RUNS:

:27 My stroke happened in 2006 around September - I was 36 years old.

A HEALTH PROFESSIONAL HERSELF, JENNIFER FAILED TO GET HER HEAD

AROUND WHAT WAS HAPPENING.

JENNIFER LIN/STROKE SURVIVOR

RUNS:

:27 I felt a little tingling in my left hand and I went to work and I was like something is not

right.

IT TOOK SIX HOURS TO FINALLY MAKE IT THE HOSPITAL AND GET A

DIAGNOSIS. JENNIFER WAS A TEXT BOOK CASE, ONLY SHE DIDN'T KNOW IT.

JENNIFER LIN/STROKE SURVIVOR

RUNS:

4:33 I had a past medical history of hypertension. I was taking birth control pills.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

60% of all stroke related deaths occur in women. While men and women share many of

the same risk factors- others are gender-specific. So a new set of guidelines are being

introduced that focus on females.

DR. WENDY BOND/NEUROLOGIST

RUNS:

:18 The recent guidelines that the American Heart Association put out, it's really

targeting the younger women.

NEUROLOGIST WENDY BOND IS JENNIFER'S DOCTOR. SHE'S WORKED WITH

A HANDFUL OF YOUNG, FEMALE STROKE VICTIMS. SEVERAL OF THE NEWLY

RELEASED RISK FACTORS ARE DANGEROUS WHEN COMBINED WITH HIGH

BLOOD PRESSURE.

DR. WENDY BOND/NEUROLOGIST

RUNS:

:09 They want you to make sure that you monitor your blood pressure before going on

the birth control pill and to stop smoking.

FREQUENT MIGRAINES WITH AURAS AND ASPECTS OF PREGNANCY

ROUND OUT THE LIST.

DR. WENDY BOND/NEUROLOGIST

RUNS:

:09 Pregnancy is a big one especially your blood pressure during your pregnancy. And

if your blood pressure goes up high enough and you spill protein into your urine you can

get preeclampsia and that is a huge risk factor for stroke down the road.

JENNIFER LIVED TO TALK ABOUT IT. SHE FEARS OTHER WOMEN MAY BE

SIMILARLY NAIVE, AND MISS THE MESSAGE.
