Our string of nice weather days will continue tomorrow and through the weekend. Skies are partly cloudy this evening and we will clear out and wake up to mostly sunny weather tomorrow. Temperatures tonight will drop to the lower 60's along and near the beaches. Mid 50's will be noted on the inland thermometers, and some patchy ground fog is possible on Friday morning.

Skies will be mostly sunny again tomorrow afternoon with high temperatures recovering to the mid 80's. An afternoon sea breeze will develop along the coast and cap the beach weather around 80 - 82 degrees. The Gulf of Mexico water temperature still sets at a cool 72 degrees.

The weekend outlook is good with partly cloudy weather and warm 80's each day. Rain-free skies are expected this weekend.

SARAH PALIN-PKG


Your typical backyard barbeque doesn't cost 500-dollars to attend -

Cathy tunney

and we're just so happy to be here to meet her personally

Lizbeth Benacquisto

Florida Senate Majority Leader

the opportunity to be here with governor palin was just so significant and were just glad to be here

So signficant - she chose the barbeque over a candidate forum in Sanibel tonight.

She said the people here are her voters too.

But a representative for the Curt Clawson campaign outside the barbeque had a different view on the matter.

David James

Spokesperson, Curt Clawson Campaign

24:23 24:28

Its a shame Sen Benacquisto is missing yet another candidate forum for the voters of this district

As for why Palin thinks those voters should choose Benacquisto.

Palin from speech

Its time to get some stability okay? Its time to get a good character in there, someone with the virtues that we can respect and that we know will do well for the future of our country
