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.

MORE WARMTH TO CLOSE THE WEEK

Heat and dry weather were the story lines again today across Southwest Florida, with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s. Expect a humid evening, with temps falling into the 80s. Overnight lows will be warm, with lows only falling into the upper 60s and low 70s.

More heat is on the way for Friday. We will also increase the humidity and moisture a touch, with partly cloudy skies and highs in the low 90s. Again, a sea breeze will develop, keeping coastal areas in the 80s.

The weekend features plenty of heat and humidity. A weak disturbance will move through the area late Saturday, which could spark a few isolated rain showers. Highs on Saturday will climb into the low 90s, with mid 80s along the coast.

Mother's Day also looks humid, with partly cloudy skies and highs in the upper 80s to low 90s. Again, a few isolated showers will be possible but most areas will stay dry.

Changes begin to arrive next week. A few isolated showers will be possible Monday, with highs in the upper 80s.

Better rain chances arrive Tuesday and Wednesday, with scattered showers developing and highs in the upper 80s.

There is some uncertainty as to how quickly the system will exit next week, and a few showers will be possible late week. Return to index of stories...

SMALL DOLLAR ITEMS ALONG WITH GIFT CARDS.

SOMETHING DIDN'T ADD UP.

Lt. Chad Parker/CCSO/3:39:15 "We received several reports of credit card fraud where the victims still had credit cards in their possession but somebody was using their credit card numbers."

DEPUTIES SAY BARREDA USED THOSE NUMBERS TO MAKE COUNTERFEIT AMERICAN EXPRESS CARDS.

BUT IT DIDN'T STOP THERE.

WHEN THE GIFT CARDS HE PURCHASED RAN OUT - DEPUTIES SAY BARREDA REPLACED THE MAGNETIC STRIP ON EACH ONE - TURNING THOSE INTO CREDIT CARDS WITH SOMEONE ELSE'S NUMBER.

Lt. Parker/3:40:19 "in this case, Omar had several counterfeits meaning the cards were completely fake."

FOR DALLEN PETERSON - IT'S TOO FAMILIAR.

BUT WITH GIFT CARDS TURNED TO CREDIT CARDS - HE BELIEVES THIEVES ARE UPPING THEIR GAME.
