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.

TRACKING SHOWERS AND STORMS

Storms are already firing up on the First Alert Live Radar this afternoon and will continue through the evening and into the night. Some of these storms will be strong to possible severe, with the main threats being very heavy downpours, gusty winds, hail and lots of thunder and lightning.

Through the evening hours, the storms move out over the Gulf of Mexico as we head into the night. Overnight, we'll stay warm and muggy under mainly cloudy skies with lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

For tomorrow, we'll see mainly cloudy skies. There will be showers and storms popping up again, but it looks like it will be another late day event as an area of low pressure moves in from the Gulf of Mexico. If you have plans early in the day even into the midday time frame, you shouldn't have any problems. The late afternoon and evening plans could be a bit of a mess, though. Expect that some of the storms that pop up could once again be on the strong to severe side and they will likely last into the overnight and even Saturday morning.

Through the day Saturday, we'll dry things out and even get the sunshine to return. Afternoon high temperatures will reach into the lower 80s.

If you are planning to attend sunrise services on Easter Sunday, temperatures will be near 60 degrees. That is rather cool by Southwest Florida standards for this time of year, so you may want the light sweater for that early morning time frame. Then we'll warm to the lower to mid 80s for Easter Sunday afternoon. Return to index of stories...

RESTING EASY ON HIS COUCH AT HIS BOYNTON BEACH HOME --

RYAN TOOGOOD RECALLS THE FIRST THING HE THOUGHT AFTER A SNAKE CHOMPED ON HIS FOOT.

Ryan TooGood/Bitten by Water Moccasin

"You know I had never been bitten by a snake and I never saw it. I thought maybe I had maybe stepped on a nail."

ON HIS WAY HOME FROM NAPLES --

TOOGOOD STOPPED ALONG ALLIGATOR ALLEY TO CHECK OUT A GATOR.

BUT A FEW STEPS INTO THE GRASS WEARING HIS FLIP FLOPS -- A WATER MOCCASIN SUNK ITS VENOMOUS FANGS INTO HIS FOOT.

"There was both that feeling of a puncture and a slam. It was very painful."

David Hitzig\Busch Wildlife Sanctuary

"Typically snakes become more active as the weather temperatures increase."

DAVID HITZIG AT THE BUSCH WILDLIFE SANCTUARY SAYS APRIL IS THE START OF SNAKE SEASON IN SOUTH FLORIDA.

HIS ADVICE -- IF YOU SEE A SNAKE -- WALK AWAY.

ESPECIALLY IF YOU'RE WEARING WHAT TOOGOOD WAS WEARING.

"If you're going to be in a natural area and you're going to be walking around, flip flops are not the best idea."

TOOGOOD SAYS -- HE'S LEARNED HIS LESSON.

"I like the idea that there's a snake out there that bit me. I hope it lives a very long time and gets big and you know I shouldn't have been there." Return to index of stories...
