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.

STAYING WARM AND MAINLY SUNNY

It is another mild morning with temperatures in the 60s across Southwest Florida. Skies are mainly clear this this morning with some patchy fog developing. Through the day, we'll see mostly sunny skies and temperatures will reach into the low to mid 80s.

A weak cold front will be moving down the peninsula, but will fizzle out tomorrow before moving into our area. It will be close enough that we could get a few more clouds and possibly even a stray shower tomorrow. That stray chance would mainly be aimed toward the inland areas.

For the end of the week, through the weekend and into next week, we'll continue with the mix of sun and clouds and temperatures continuing the warming trend. We'll be into the upper 80s this weekend. In the long range, our next rain chance arrives a week from today. Return to index of stories...

HAWAIIAN AIR COULDN'T CONFIRM TO US TODAY THAT THE USUAL EXTERIOR INSPECTION WAS PERFORMED BEFORE THE FLIGHT. BUT THE COMPANY SAYS ITS PROTOCOL INCLUDES A VISUAL REVIEW OF ANY COMPARTMENT ACCESSIBLE FROM THE GROUND INCLUDING THE WHEEL WELL.

AND COCKPIT CREWS ALSO CONDUCT EXTERIOR WALK AROUNDS AT THE GATE. BUT THE REAL RULE IS NOT INCLUDED IN THIS CHECK LIST AND AT THIS TIME, THE WHEEL WELL DOORS ARE CLOSED AND THE AREA IS NOT VISIBLE.

FORMER ALOHA AIRLINES PILOT BRUCE MAZE HAS FLOWN MILITARY AND COMMERCIAL AIRPLANES FOR 40 YEARS AND HAS CONDUCTED THOUSANDS OF PREFLIGHT INSPECTIONS.

"The focal point of preflight inspection is air worthiness of the aircraft. That is a function of the flight crew and ground crew. And as long as that team is working together, the safety of the aircraft will be assured."

"My daughter was killed at the University of Virginia in 2010 by an ex-boyfriend."

IT HAPPENED JUST WEEKS BEFORE SHE WAS SCHEDULED TO GRADUATE.

"We hadn't planned on addressing relationship violence in the beginning and over a two year time, relationship violence kept coming to us."

SO. LOVE PARTNERED WITH OTHERS TO HELP CREATE THE ONE LOVE FOUNDATION, ALONG WITH APPS TO HELP VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.

THE NEWEST ONE IS CALLED THE "ONE LOVE MYPLAN APP" -- AN ANONYMOUS FREE ONLINE APPLICATION FOR SMARTPHONES AND OTHER ELECTRONIC DEVICES.

DOCTOR NANCY GLASS, PROFESSOR AT JOHN'S HOPKINS SCHOOL OF NURSING, HELPED TO DEVELOP THE APP.

"This is a tool to help drive women to existing resources. What we know in our country is that 10 percent of women actually use the traditional services like advocacy programs."

HERE'S HOW THE APP WORKS --

AFTER SIGNING IN WITH A SECURE PASSCODE, IT TAKES YOU THROUGH A QUESTIONNAIRE.

DETAILS RED FLAGS, GIVES YOU A DANGER ASSESSMENT. AND EVEN SCORES YOUR LEVEL OF DANGER IN A RELATIONSHIP.

THE APP CAN ALSO CONNECT YOU TO LOCAL RESOURCES. OR OFFER A 24/7 CHAT LINE.

IT'S ALSO GEARED TOWARD FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

"MyPlan provides a script, a plan they can use to approach a friend and then say, I'm worried, I'm concerned. Can I help you talk to somebody who has the expertise."

LOVE IS HOPEFUL THAT EVERYONE WILL USE IT.

"I'm hoping it will help men and women, because I think if men take this app they'll see themselves as an abuser."

IT'S WHERE THE INDIAN OCEAN AND THE SOUTHERN OCEAN MEET.

REMEMBER THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF INCLEMENT WEATHER IN THE PAST SIX WEEKS, EVEN A CYCLONE.

IT IS UNUSUAL THOUGH THAT IT'S THE ONLY PIECE OF POTENTIAL WRECKAGE THAT ANYONE'S SEEN SO FAR.

"If it is confirmed to be part of MH370 you would imagine that they would step up their search of the shore-line of Australia to see if anything else may have washed ashore. Though right not NOT confirmed to be part of MH370. They are still searching underwater with Bluefin-21. It is on its tenth dive right now. So far no sign of any wreckage.

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.

STAYING WARM AND MAINLY SUNNY

It is another mild morning with temperatures in the 60s across Southwest Florida. Skies are mainly clear this this morning with some patchy fog developing. Through the day, we'll see mostly sunny skies and temperatures will reach into the low to mid 80s.

A weak cold front will be moving down the peninsula, but will fizzle out tomorrow before moving into our area. It will be close enough that we could get a few more clouds and possibly even a stray shower tomorrow. That stray chance would mainly be aimed toward the inland areas.

For the end of the week, through the weekend and into next week, we'll continue with the mix of sun and clouds and temperatures continuing the warming trend. We'll be into the upper 80s this weekend. In the long range, our next rain chance arrives a week from today. Return to index of stories...

FOR A SUSPECTED KIDNAPPER, THAT ARE POTENTIAL CRIMINAL TOOLS. INSIDE KELLY SWOBODA'S VAN POLICE FOUND CHAINS AND ROPE PADLOCKED TO THE FLOOR. HE ALSO HAD ZIPTIES AND LATEX GLOVES.

"It's paraphernalia that people normally use in a crime of abduction and of rape and in some cases murder."

INVESTIGATORS THINK KELLY SWOBODA MAY HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR HIS NEXT VICTIM WHEN HE APPROACHED SEVERAL CHILDREN AROUND WILSON HIGH SCHOOL LAST MONTH. SWOBODA DIED AFTER A SHOOT OUT WITH POLICE.

THE 49-YEAR-OLD HAD BEEN ON THE RUN SINCE JANUARY. POLICE SAY SWOBODA KIDNAPPED A WOMEN AT AN OAK GROVE TANNING SALON. THE WOMAN BOUND WITH DUCT TAPE GOT AWAY.

"It's rarely the first time a person behaves this way. They normally have a history but they haven't been caught."

ACCORDING TO HIS BROTHER, POLICE CONTACTED SWOBODA IN THE EARLY 90'S ABOUT A MISSING WOMAN OR RAPE CASE. ITS NOT CLEAR WHAT HAPPENED IN THAT CASE. SWOBODA HAD A LONG CRIMINAL HISTORY INCLUDING CONVICTIONS FOR BANK ROBBERY. HIS MOTHER SAYS, KELLY SWOBODA HAD MENTAL ISSUES.

"It just breaks my heart. He was so smart. He had to cope with that illness. A couple times he would look at me and he'd say Mom, i don't want to be like this."

POLICE FEAR SWOBODA COULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR OTHER UNSOLVED CASES. HE OFTEN TRAVELED ALONE FROM PORTLAND AND RENO. HE LEFT BEHIND A TRAIL OF SUSPICION. Return to index of stories...
