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.

"Drier and cooler weather settles in"

Winds will continue to be breezy out of the northwest with gusts up to 25mph. Patchy clouds will linger around through the mid day hours, with more sunshine breaking out during the afternoon hours. Daytime highs will be significantly cooler as they top out in the middle to upper 70s. As a dry airmass settles in, humidity levels will drop and our afternoon will remain quite comfortable.

Mostly clear skies will prevail tonight and temperatures will tumble into the middle 50s here in town. There will be a bit of a chill in the air, especially across our inland and northern cool spots, as the mercury drops into lower 50s by morning.

High pressure will have a nice grip on our weather through the end of the week. This will keep us in the 50s for one more night, but as winds start to veer more to the east a quick temperature rebound is forecast. By Thursday, daytime highs will climb into the lower to middle 80s with mainly dry and sunny weather. Rain returns to the area by Tuesday of next week. Return to index of stories...

THE SEARCH COORDINATOR IS NOW OPTIMISTIC THEY WILL FIND WHAT'S LEFT OF FLIGHT MH370 IN THE NOT TOO DISTANT FUTURE.

BUT HE WARNED THERE IS STILL A WAY TO GO, AND THAT HE ISN'T PREPARED TO CONFIRM ANYTHING UNTIL SOMEONE LAYS EYES ON THE WRECKAGE.

HIS OPTIMISM IS BASED ON THE DETECTION BY THE U-S NAVY'S PING DETECTOR OF TWO MORE SIGNALS CONSISTENT WITH THE BLACK BOXES.

THAT MAKES FOUR IN THE SAME AREA.

BUT THEY ARE GETTING WEAKER, PROBABLY AS A RESULT OF THE BLACK BOX BATTERIES COMING TO THE END OF THEIR LIFE.

THEY'RE NOW TRYING TO GET A BETTER LOCK ON WHERE THE SOUNDS ARE COMING FROM BEFORE SENDING DOWN A SUBMERSIBLE, A SORT OF UNDERWATER DRONE, TO CHECK IT OUT.

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.

"Drier and cooler weather settles in"

Winds will continue to be breezy out of the northwest with gusts up to 25mph. Patchy clouds will linger around through the mid day hours, with more sunshine breaking out during the afternoon hours. Daytime highs will be significantly cooler as they top out in the middle to upper 70s. As a dry airmass settles in, humidity levels will drop and our afternoon will remain quite comfortable.

Mostly clear skies will prevail tonight and temperatures will tumble into the middle 50s here in town. There will be a bit of a chill in the air, especially across our inland and northern cool spots, as the mercury drops into lower 50s by morning.

High pressure will have a nice grip on our weather through the end of the week. This will keep us in the 50s for one more night, but as winds start to veer more to the east a quick temperature rebound is forecast. By Thursday, daytime highs will climb into the lower to middle 80s with mainly dry and sunny weather. Rain returns to the area by Tuesday of next week. Return to index of stories...

A MAINSTAY OF PUBLIC HEALTH SINCE THE 1970s, THE PEDIATRIC

VACCINE SCHEDULE HAS COME UNDER FIRE IN RECENT YEARS. NOW NEW

RESEARCH FINDS COMBINED SHOTS MAY PROTECT AGAINST UNRELATED INFECTIONS.

AMY OSHIER REPORTS IN TODAYS HEALTH MATTERS. Return to index of stories...


HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


IF YOU WORK HARD TO KEEP YOUR CHILDREN ON TIME- YOU'VE GOT

COMPANY- YOUR PEDIATRICIAN ALONG WITH THE AMERICAN ACADEMY

OF PEDIATRICS WOULD LIKE KIDS TO STAY ON SCHEDULE- WITH THEIR

VACCINATIONS.

DR. DENISE DRAGO/PEDIATRICIAN

RUNS:

1:44: When the AAP made the schedule, they didn't just choose which shots should go

where. They looked at when the child is at most risk for that disease.

RECENT YEARS HAVE SEEN MORE PARENTS ENGAGE IN SHOT-LIMITING OR

DELAYING IMMUNIZATIONS. AT THE SAME TIME THE NUMBER OF VACCINE-

PREVENTABLE DISEASES HAVE GONE UP.

DR. DENISE DRAGO/PEDIATRICIAN

RUNS:

1:07 We see a lot more chickenpox than we used to. People aren't doing the

chickenpox vaccine. Especially overseas, they've had a lot of people not doing the

measles vaccine and they've seen a large increase in the amount of measles.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

As the vaccine schedule has evolved, several shots are grouped together. They are

tested and approved to be given that way. It means children get 'poked' fewer times-

and now new research shows an even bigger benefit: strengthening your child against

infections.

A STUDY PUBLISHED IN THE AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PEDIATRICS SHOWED

USE OF THE MMR VACCINE NOT ONLY PROTECTS AGAINST MEASLES,

MUMPS AND RUBELLA- CHILDREN WHO ARE IMMUNIZED ON SCHEDULE ARE

LESS LIKELY TO END UP IN THE HOSPITAL WITH ANY TYPE OF INFECTION.

ESPECIALLY RESPIRATORY ONES.

DR. DENISE DRAGO/PEDIATRICIAN

RUNS:

8:21 Parents need to be more aware of what shots they did get and what shots they

didn't. That's very different if they get a fever and end up in the emergency room then a

child who got all of their shots. 8:39 So you are putting your child at additional harm by

not vaccinating against those things at one time.

IT'S BELIEVED THE GROUPED SHOTS MAY HAVE A GENERAL IMMUNIZING

EFFECT. THE LATEST FINDINGS GIVING THE VACCINE SCHEDULE A MUCH-

NEEDED SHOT IN THE ARM. FOR LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM, I'M AMY
