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.

"A dry stretch of weather"

After a soggy start to the weekend, we ended it on a sunnier note. With no big weather systems headed our way, expect tranquil conditions over the next several days with a big warm up through the week.

Wall to wall sunshine will prevail through the late afternoon hours as temperatures peak in the upper 80s. Lower 90s will be felt deeper inland in a few spots, while slightly cooler readings will be along the coast as the seabreeze develops.

Through the evening, temperatures will start to settle back into the lower 80s. Mostly clear skies will remain in the forecast tonight with comfortable temperatures as they dip into the lower to middle 60s area wide.

As high pressure continues to build in across the peninsula, expect mostly sunny skies through Tuesday. Daytime highs will be quite toasty as they top out in the lower 90s. As winds turn more southeasterly and humidity levels start to come up a bit, morning lows will gradually warm into the middle to upper 60s, while daytime temperatures return to the lower 90s each afternoon. The forecast looks dry for much of next week with partly sunny conditions. Models are hinting at a few showers by next weekend, but rain prospects at this time are only around 20-30%.

PRIVATE SCHOOL IS THE PERFECT FIT FOR KATHARINE OLIVER'S CHILDREN.

Katharine Oliver, Parent and Teacher

"I didn't want my kids to be test results."

SHE TEACHES AT RENAISSANCE SCHOOL - A PRIVATE MONTESSORI SCHOOL IN FORT MYERS - WHERE TWO OF HER CHILDREN ARE ENROLLED.

BUT PAYING FOR IT ISN'T EASY.

Katharine Oliver, Parent and Teacher

08:38:55 I am not willing to sacrifice my children's education that's top priority. I will drive a beat up car, I will live in a small house. 8:39:04

LAST YEAR - SHE WAS ELIGIBLE FOR A VOUCHER FROM THE STATE TO HELP PAY TUITION. BUT A PROMOTION AT WORK BUMPED HER INCOME OUT OF THE ELIGIBLE RANGE.

NOW A BILL - PASSED BY THE HOUSE AND SENATE AT THE LAST MINUTE FRIDAY WOULD EXPAND THE VOUCHER PROGRAM TO MIDDLE-INCOME FAMILIES.

Katharine Oliver, Parent and Teacher

8:43:56 Every child needs something different and I have found what my children need and I believe whole heatedly that I should be able to get some support to do that. 8:44:06

SHE'S NOT ALONE. THE HEAD OF SCHOOL SAYS 10-12 FAMILIES TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE VOUCHERS EVERY YEAR. SHE SUPPORTS THE EXPANSION.

Kathy Leitch, Renaissance School

8:31:22 there is a lot of people who believe in what we do as want this for their children and they should have that opportunity. 8:31:27

8:22:00 I'm just disgusted with it.

NOT EVERYONE AGREES.

Mark Castellano, Lee Co. Teacher's Union

"Not only the content of the bill which is bothersome to say the least, but it's the way they did it. 8:22:10

MARK CASTELLANO WITH THE LEE COUNTY TEACHER'S UNION SAYS THIS BILL WOULD TAKE MONEY AWAY FROM PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND SERVICES.

CORPORATIONS MAKE DONATIONS TO SCHOLARSHIP ORGANIZATIONS AS A TAX WRITE OFF - THAT MONEY PAYS FOR THE VOUCHERS.

Mark Castellano, Lee Co. Teacher's Union

8:24:47 if I felt for one minute that this was really about their concern for quality of public education or quality of education of students you know i might be able to stomach it a little better but that's not what it is. It's about money. 8:24:59
