Laura Roberts

27:22 27:33

Now if you need a little bit of extra time you can come in and pick up one of these, form 4868. It will give you an extension on the paperwork but be careful because to wont give you an extension on any taxes you may owe.

Joe Cloos

Liberty Tax Service

05:10 05:22

If you think that you owe or you owed in the past its always best to send them some type of payment with the extension and that gets applied to your taxes when you you actually file them

THOSE PENALTIES CAN ADD UP -

SO ANOTHER OPTION IS CHOOSING TO SET UP A PAYMENT PLAN TO PAY WHAT YOU OWE IN INSTALLMENTS.

BUT EXPERTS SAY MOST PEOPLE DO GET A RETURN -

AND THE SOONER YOU FILE, THE SOONER THAT MONEY IS YOURS.

***NAT SOUND - THANK YOU*** Return to index of stories...

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.

"Increasing rain prospects"

The weekend was quite warm as daytime highs pushed into the middle to upper 80s. A few downpours managed to make their way across the state, however they were few and far between. It still looks like our rain prospects will be going up a bit, especially by mid week with the approach of another weather system.

Daytime temperatures climbed into the middle and upper 80s today, with a few of our inland spots briefly touching that 90° mark. Through the late afternoon hours, expect some clouds to mix in with our sunshine with the chance for a few spotty showers deeper inland. Otherwise the vast majority of us will end our Monday on a warm, humid, and dry note.

Tonight our skies should stay fairly quiet, but as our next system approaches cloud cover will be on the increase with partly cloudy conditions forecast. It will also be a very mild and muggy night as temperatures settle into the lower 70a area wide.

A south and southwesterly breeze ahead of the cold front will continue to pump in the warmth and humidity. Even though Tuesday calls for more clouds and the chance for a few scattered downpours, daytime highs will climb into the middle 80s. It looks like this front will run out of steam across Southwest Florida, which means we'll continue to be in an unsettled weather pattern through the second half of the week. Temperatures will remain in the 80s, while overnight lows settle into the 60s. As of right now, forecast models are hinting at a drier Easter weekend. Return to index of stories...

CAROL STEWART WITH THE CALUSA NATURE CENTER AND PLANETARIUM IN FORT

MYERS IS TALKING ABOUT THE TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE THAT IS TAKING PLACE

TONIGHT.

Carol Stewart

:49:50 heres the sun the earth and the moon--

IT ONLY HAPPENS EVERY 2-3 YEARS-- WHEN THE SUN EARTH AND MOON PERFECTLY ALIGN.

THE SUN CASTS A SHADOW ON THE EARTH-- AND WHEN THE MOON TRAVELS INTO

THE SHADOW IT TURNS AN ORANGISH RED.

Carol Stewart

:46:25 Just like a light switch-- all the stars around it pop out. its

really very beautiful to watch.

Hollie Hojek SU

:03:38 "While some say what you will see tonight is strictly scientific,

:04:08 others say it's a sign from God."

:59:48 Nat pop-reading scripture

"the sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before

the coming of the great and awesome day of The Lord."

RABBI JIM PRICKENS SAYS EVERY TIME THERE HAS BEEN A TOTAL LUNAR

ECLIPSE IN THE PAST-- THERE HAS ALSO BEEN A SIGN FROM GOD.

Rabbi Jim Prickens, Beth Yeshua Messianic Synagogue

:54:26 late 40s when Israel became a nation.

It happened in 67-68 during the 6 day war.

:54:31 is something big going to happen to Israel-- we'll see.

:04

RABBI PRICKENS SAYS WHAT MAKES THIS ECLIPSE EVEN MORE RARE- IS BECAUSE

IT FALLS ON THE SAME NIGHT THAT PASSOVER BEGINS.

Rabbi Prickens

:56:45 God said he is going to do this, and it's going to be a sign,

this is kind of an unusual thing to happen- so lets pay attention.

:07

DUE TO ALL THE RECENT VOLCANIC ACTIVITY-- STEWART SAYS THE MOON MAY BE

EVEN REDDER THAN IN THE PAST.

THE BEST PART ABOUT IT- ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS WALK RIGHT OUTSIDE YOUR

DOOR TO SEE IT.
