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.

After a cool and breezy start to the morning with temperatures in the 50s, we'll warm up quickly throughout day the under full sunshine.

Humidity will stay at low and comfortable levels, and since the air will be so dry, rain won't be in the our forecast at all.

Temperatures will climb into the mid to upper 70s by noon and then peak in the low to mid 80s during the afternoon hours; coastal communities will stay closer to 80 while inland zones get closer to 85 degrees.

The wind won't be as strong today, but we'll still have some gusts in the 15-20 mph range.

this evening and tonight will be very pleasant but still a little on the cool side.

Most of us closer to the coast and along the urban corridor will drop to the low 60s, except around Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda where we'll dip into the upper 50s.

We continue the warming trend Friday through the weekend with daytime highs bouncing back to the mid to upper 80s.

Humidity also makes a comeback late this weekend, but moisture will still be too limited to bring a significant rain chance into the forecast, keeping the weekend outlook mainly dry and sunny.

The next chance of rain likely won't be until Tuesday when a weak cool front slides down the Florida peninsula. Return to index of stories...

MINUTES. HE WORKS OUT 4 TIMES A WEEK, LIFTS WEIGHTS AND MAKES A DAILY EFFORT

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.

After a cool and breezy start to the morning with temperatures in the 50s, we'll warm up quickly throughout day the under full sunshine.

Humidity will stay at low and comfortable levels, and since the air will be so dry, rain won't be in the our forecast at all.

Temperatures will climb into the mid to upper 70s by noon and then peak in the low to mid 80s during the afternoon hours; coastal communities will stay closer to 80 while inland zones get closer to 85 degrees.

The wind won't be as strong today, but we'll still have some gusts in the 15-20 mph range.

this evening and tonight will be very pleasant but still a little on the cool side.

Most of us closer to the coast and along the urban corridor will drop to the low 60s, except around Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda where we'll dip into the upper 50s.

We continue the warming trend Friday through the weekend with daytime highs bouncing back to the mid to upper 80s.

Humidity also makes a comeback late this weekend, but moisture will still be too limited to bring a significant rain chance into the forecast, keeping the weekend outlook mainly dry and sunny.

The next chance of rain likely won't be until Tuesday when a weak cool front slides down the Florida peninsula. Return to index of stories...

EVEN THOUGH THE EFFECTS OF SMOKING HAVE BEEN WELL DOCUMENTED.

MANY PEOPLE ARE STILL IN THE DARK ABOUT IT'S LINK TO CANCER.

TOBACCO HURTS MORE THAN LUNGS.

IN TODAYS HEALTH MATTERS AMY OSHIER SPEAKS WITH A MAN WHO LEARNED THE HARD WAY. Return to index of stories...


HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


RUNS:

5:34 I was a heavy smoker for 30 years.

ROBERT WISEMAN WORRIED THAT LUNG CANCER MIGHT SOMEDAY CATCH UP

WITH HIM- BUT HE NEVER CONSIDERED KIDNEY CANCER. WHICH DID.

ROBERT WISEMAN/KIDNEY CANCER SURVIVOR

RUNS:

:57 I didn't feel it in my body, didn't know it was there. All I felt was the pain, thinking it

was a kidney stone.

DR. PAUL BRETTON/UROLOGIST

RUNS:

5:57: Mr. Wiseman came in and had gross blood in his urine. And as part of his work

up, we did a CAT scan in his abdomen, which the CAT scan showed about a 15 cm

mass in his left kidney.

A LARGE TUMOR DOUBLED THE SIZE OF HIS LEFT KIDNEY. KIDNEY CANCERS

THAT ARE FUELED BY TOBACCO ARE LINKED TO MORE DEADLY AND

AGGRESSIVE DISEASE.

DR. PAUL BRETTON/UROLOGIST

RUNS:

7:29: Well there's a lot of carcinogen in cigarette smoking and what they can do is turn

on or change the cells in the kidney- to turn it to cancer cells or you could have a pre-

disposition already there and it promotes the growth of those tumors. So that adds to

the problem.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

Researchers find current and former smokers are nearly twice as likely to develop

kidney cancer than people who never picked up the habit.

But for every decade a former smoker was smoke-free, the risk decreases by 9 percent.

DR. PAUL BRETTON/UROLOGIST

RUNS:

8:37 We checked if it had spread anywhere else and fortunately for him it was all contained to

his kidney.

ROBERT LOST A KIDNEY- AND LEARNED A COSTLY LESSON.

ROBERT WISEMAN/KIDNEY CANCER SURVIVOR

RUNS:

5:56 If it helped just one person to quit I would be happy.

HIS ENTIRE FAMILY SNUBBED OUT THEIR CIGARETTES FOR GOOD, HE HOPES

HIS STORY WILL SPARK CHANGE IN OTHERS. FOR LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH
