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.

"Hot and humid days"

Over the weekend temperatures managed to soar into the lower 90s across Southwest Florida. In fact, Page Field recorded 91° on thermometer both Saturday and Sunday. The summer-like heat will continue, with increasing rain prospects by mid to late week.

After a warm and muggy start to the day, temperatures will continue to climb into the middle 80s through the mid day hours. Sunshine will prevail through much of the afternoon with a few clouds moving in from the west. As winds turn onshore, temperatures will stay slightly cooler along our beaches and coastal areas with readings in the middle 80s. Expect daytime highs to climb near 90° in town, while inland communities top out one or two degrees above that. As the seabreeze moves inland, a few spotty showers will be possible mainly east of the interstate.

This slight shower chance will continue through the evening hours, and temperatures will begin to settle into the lower 80s by sunset. Due to the extra humidity, temperatures will be slow to fall overnight as they bottom out in the upper 60s to lower 70s area wide.

With high pressure to our east, a southerly flow will continue to pump in heat and moisture. Expect partly sunny skies for Tuesday with a few showers deep inland. Temperatures will remain unseasonably warm in the upper 80s to lower 90s. We'll keep late day showers in the forecast through Wednesday, with higher rain chances Thursday through Saturday as a cold front approaches the Florida peninsula. By Sunday, more sunshine is back in the forecast with a slight drop in humidity values. Return to index of stories...

IN A NEW MEDICAL REPORT,

THE EFFECTS OF BREAST CANCER MAY CONTINUE LONG AFTER TREATMENT ENDS.

WHAT WE FOUND IS SURPRISING,

WOMEN WHO HAD CHEMOTHERAPY MAY HAVE A HARD TIME FINDING WORK AFTER CANCER.

ERIKA EDWARDS REPORTS. Return to index of stories...


BREAST CANCER UNEMPLOYMENT-PKG


A NEW STUDY FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN FINDS ONE THIRD OF EARLY-STAGE BREAST CANCER PATIENTS WHO ARE TREATED WITH CHEMOTHERAPY ARE UNEMPLOYED FOUR YEARS AFTER TREATMENT -- AND NOT BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT TO WORK.

MANY HAD TROUBLE KEEPING A JOB BECAUSE OF ALL THE TIME THEY MISSED FOR APPOINTMENT AND PROCEDURES.

OTHERS HAD LONG-TERM EFFECTS FROM CHEMO -- LIKE NUMBNESS IN THEIR LIMBS OR TROUBLE THINKING AND CONCENTRATING.

"I have one patient who put sticky notes all over her computer, it wasn't' what she did before. But it's how she's adapting to keeping herself organized after chemotherapy."

DOCTORS ARE NOT SUGGESTING PATIENTS AVOID CHEMOTHERAPY -- THE TOP PRIORITY IS GIVING THE MOST EFFECTIVE TREATMENT FOR A CURE.

THEY SAY DOCTORS AND PATIENTS NEED TO BE AWARE THAT NOT EVERYONE SPRINGS BACK INTO ACTION AFTER TREATMENT.

"We need to look at not only the treatments, but how do we do better at managing the side effects, especially the long term side effects in the survivorship years."

DOCTORS SAY CHEMOTHERAPY COMPLICATIONS CAN LAST A YEAR OR TWO -- AND SOME ARE PERMANENT.

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.

"Hot and humid days"

Over the weekend temperatures managed to soar into the lower 90s across Southwest Florida. In fact, Page Field recorded 91° on thermometer both Saturday and Sunday. The summer-like heat will continue, with increasing rain prospects by mid to late week.

After a warm and muggy start to the day, temperatures will continue to climb into the middle 80s through the mid day hours. Sunshine will prevail through much of the afternoon with a few clouds moving in from the west. As winds turn onshore, temperatures will stay slightly cooler along our beaches and coastal areas with readings in the middle 80s. Expect daytime highs to climb near 90° in town, while inland communities top out one or two degrees above that. As the seabreeze moves inland, a few spotty showers will be possible mainly east of the interstate.

This slight shower chance will continue through the evening hours, and temperatures will begin to settle into the lower 80s by sunset. Due to the extra humidity, temperatures will be slow to fall overnight as they bottom out in the upper 60s to lower 70s area wide.

With high pressure to our east, a southerly flow will continue to pump in heat and moisture. Expect partly sunny skies for Tuesday with a few showers deep inland. Temperatures will remain unseasonably warm in the upper 80s to lower 90s. We'll keep late day showers in the forecast through Wednesday, with higher rain chances Thursday through Saturday as a cold front approaches the Florida peninsula. By Sunday, more sunshine is back in the forecast with a slight drop in humidity values. Return to index of stories...
