FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


SHOWERS AND STORMS HEADING INTO SOUTHWEST FLORIDA

It has been warm and muggy through the day and now showers and storms are starting to move into the area. A cold front is approaching from the Gulf of Mexico and will be the driving force to give us scattered showers and storms through the balance of the afternoon, evening and even into the overnight hours. By Saturday morning we'll be back to drying things out again. Overnight lows will be near 70 degrees, but behind the front we'll only warm into the lower 80s for afternoon highs on Saturday. It will also be windy behind the front on Saturday with winds from the west gusting around 25 mph. Cloud cover will be decreasing through the day Saturday.

Then, overnight Saturday into Sunday, winds will turn more northwesterly and that will continue to send in cooler, drier air. Morning lows will be in the lower 60s to start Sunday morning. That means you may even want that light jacket as you head out to Easter sunrise services. Highs for Easter Sunday will be in the low to mid 80s under mostly sunny skies.

Looking ahead; we'll stay on track for mostly sunny skies with highs in the mid to upper 80s through the work week.

THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

CLAWSON PROFILE-BNR-PKG


35:45 "when we came home from school we could smell chocolate chip cookies and hear her singing opera."

CURT CLAWSON'S MOTHER HAS ALWAYS BEEN HIS BIGGEST SUPPORTER.

The silly savvy seven and they are sensational as well.

THE FORMER HOMECOMING QUEEN AT BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY ALWAYS WANTED A BIG FAMILY, AND SHE WAS BLESSED WITH SEVEN CHILDREN, CURT FALLING SMACK IN THE MIDDLE.

37:22

my mom always wanted to give us piano lessons and opera.

CURT ON THE OTHER HAND, LOVED CARS AND BASKETBALL. HE GOT A BASKETBALL SCHOLARSHIP TO PURDUE AND WAS CAPTAIN THE YEAR HIS TEAM WON THE BIG TEN CHAMPIONSHIP.

you learn when you go to the next level, its not about me, its about the team, that's a core belief I have"

HE MET HIS WIFE IN GRADUATE SCHOOL AT HARVARD, BUT THE MARRIAGE didn't LAST,

i was married for 14 years. my ex wife is my best friend.

HE BECAME A CEO IN HIS LATE 30'S, AND RECENTLY RETIRED AS CEO OF HAYES LEMMER, A FORTUNE 500 COMPANY THAT MANUFACTURES TIRES.

THE 52 YEAR OLD MOVED TO A HOME OVERLOOKING THIS BEAUTIFUL BEACH IN BONITA SPRINGS TWO YEARS AGO, TO TAKE CARE OF HIS PARENTS. AND WIN OR LOSE ON TUESDAY, HE'S HERE TO STAY.

for the last 2 years, i've been here, carpet -bagger doesn't fit into what i'm about.

AS CLAWSON AND HIS MOTHER SHOWED ME THE VIEW FROM THEIR THIRD STORY BALCONY.

nats isnt this great kellie

I ASKED HIM WHY HE WOULD SPEND SO MUCH MONEY TO GET A JOB THAT TOOK HIM AWAY FROM THIS BEAUTY.

13:06 well that's a good question, I think its a sacrifice we make for our country.

CLAWSON IS SACRIFICING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF HIS OWN MONEY TO WIN THE PRIMARY, OUTSPENDING HIS OPPONENTS TWO TO ONE.

18:06 this is a donation of time, heart, soul and money for the good of the country.

BUT WHEN HE ANNOUNCED HIS CANDIDACY IN JANUARY HE NEVER EXPECTED IT TO GET THIS NASTY.

17:15

we didn't anticipate the second surprise from their campaign, it got tougher and tougher, it got more and more expensive, and it turned some people off.

THE NEGATIVE ADS BOTHER HIS MOTHER,

WHO TOOK THE AIRWAVES DEFENDING HER SON.

38:25 he wouldn't be just a politician. he would preserve our freedom.
