FIRST WEATHER


"A FEW STORMS TODAY"

The summer-like heat won't stop across Southwest Florida. Yesterday we officially topped out at 92° and while this isn't one for the record books, it's still about 5° above average. The trend of hot and humid days will continue before relief comes in the form of scattered rain by late in the week.

A good amount of sunshine will prevail through the late morning hours, allowing temperatures to climb quickly into the middle to upper 80s by noon. During the afternoon expect partly sunny skies to take over along with a southerly wind. This will continue to pump in more heat and moisture across the area. This combined with the seabreeze will allow for a few downpours and storms to develop along and east of the interstate. Daytime highs will eventually top out in the lower to middle 90s, with cooler readings at our beaches and coastal locations.

A very 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 lower 70s.

A slow moving storm system that continues to kick off rounds of severe weather across the south, will push itself down the Florida peninsula in a much weakened state. This will bring us a slight uptick to our rain prospects beginning Friday. As this front drapes itself across the southern half of the state, expect more clouds than sun Friday and Saturday with scattered rain and a few storms. Skies will turn a bit sunnier by late Sunday with drier weather building over the state. Return to index of stories...

"I felt the pressure on my players. Everyone was waiting for them to give a response, and I kept thinking, they didn't do anything yet they have to respond."

CLIPPERS OWNER DONALD STERLING ADMITTED MAKING THE INCENDIARY COMMENTS TO HIS GIRLFRIEND -- A RECORDING OF WHICH WAS FIRST RELEASED BY TMZ SPORTS

"Yeah, it bothers me a lot that you want to.broadcast that you're associating with black people."

IT'S GIVING THE PHRASE "HITTING A HIGH NOTE" -- A WHOLE NEW MEANING.

"It was an interesting way of connecting ourselves to new audiences and new, potential financial support."

MEMBERS OF THE CANNABIS INDUSTRY ARE TEAMING UP WITH THE COLORADO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA FOR A SERIES OF FUNDRAISING CONCERTS CALLED "CLASSICALLY CANNABIS-THE HIGH NOTE SERIES."

JANE WEST IS THE OWNER OF EDIBLE EVENTS, WHICH IS STAGING THE CONCERTS AT DENVER'S SPACE GALLERY.

THE EVENT IS BYOC-BRING YOUR OWN CANNABIS.

IT'S ALL LEGAL, SINCE IT'S A PRIVATE EVENT-REQUIRING A TICKET.

"I'd like to start redefining what a cannabis user looks like."

Thank you for calling the Colorado Symphony, how may I help you?

IT'S A MOVE MADE NECESSARY, IN PART, BECAUSE OF THE TOUGH FINANCIAL PICTURE CONFRONTING THE SYMPHONY.

nats - We'll definitely make those notes when we get to that point.

THE SYMPHONY SAYS THE FEEDBACK SO FAR IS MOSTLY POSITIVE - BUT NOT ALL.

"Look, we're going to find people among our current audience, who are going to be less than pleased about this new event. But over time, people are going to get more and more comfortable with it."

BUT WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO IT, IT IS TICKET SALES THAT WILL DETERMINE WHETHER THIS PARTNERSHIP IS IN PERFECT HARMONY.

WEATHER-WX WALL


!!!NEED WX ANCHOR CG!!!

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.

"A FEW STORMS TODAY"

The summer-like heat won't stop across Southwest Florida. Yesterday we officially topped out at 92° and while this isn't one for the record books, it's still about 5° above average. The trend of hot and humid days will continue before relief comes in the form of scattered rain by late in the week.

A good amount of sunshine will prevail through the late morning hours, allowing temperatures to climb quickly into the middle to upper 80s by noon. During the afternoon expect partly sunny skies to take over along with a southerly wind. This will continue to pump in more heat and moisture across the area. This combined with the seabreeze will allow for a few downpours and storms to develop along and east of the interstate. Daytime highs will eventually top out in the lower to middle 90s, with cooler readings at our beaches and coastal locations.

A very 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 lower 70s.

A slow moving storm system that continues to kick off rounds of severe weather across the south, will push itself down the Florida peninsula in a much weakened state. This will bring us a slight uptick to our rain prospects beginning Friday. As this front drapes itself across the southern half of the state, expect more clouds than sun Friday and Saturday with scattered rain and a few storms. Skies will turn a bit sunnier by late Sunday with drier weather building over the state. Return to index of stories...

WHEN YOU ENVISION A PATHWAY- YOU THINK OF SOMETHING THAT HELPS YOU GET TO YOUR DESTINATION. THAT HOLDS TRUE FOR CANCER CARE TOO. MANAGED CANCER PATHWAYS ARE MEANT TO GUIDE PEOPLE THROUGH TREATMENT.

STACEY BRILL/SPEECH THERAPIST

RUNS:

1:33 There are certain physicians that do send us to the patient right after diagnosis. They're diagnosed in the office that day, the doctor writes the order faxes it to me the next day and we get them in and get them going before they even start chemo-radiation or have surgery. Just to get baselines and give them education.

ORAL CANCER PATIENT LARRY BRUNDAGE GOT ENGAGED WITH THE SYSTEM ABOUT 6 MONTHS INTO TREATMENT. BY THEN HIS HEAD WAS SWIRLING.

LARRY BRUNDAGE/CANCER PATIENT

RUNS:

6:28 You get so many doctors involved I think at one time my wife counted 23 doctors at one time. 7:38 At the time I got involved there wasn't a navigator.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

The navigator is the point-person. Their role is to cut through the clutter. They meet with patients and determine what resources are available- they also create a roadmap for care. It includes coordinating between professionals and even assisting with setting appointments.

THE HEAD AND NECK CANCER PATHWAY MAKES STOPS AT A VARIETY HEALTH SPECIALTIES. STACEY BRILL IS A SPEECH THERAPIST WHO HELPS WITH SWALLOWING. VALERIE BUTRAM IS A DIETITIAN WITH THE REGIONAL CANCER CENTER. SHE MAKES SURE PATIENTS GET PROPER NOURISHMENT.
