FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


!!!!NEED WX ANCHOR CG!!!!!

Our mostly sunny and tranquil weather continued as we got the new work week started. It was also pretty hot with daytime highs topping out in the lower to middle 90s as there was not much of a cooling effect from the seabreeze. Rain prospects will be on the rise over the next several days as tropical moisture moves in from the east and southeast.

After a mild and muggy start to the day, temperatures will continue to rise through the lunchtime hour as they approach the middle 80s. Partly sunny skies will take over through much of the afternoon, while temperatures climb into the lower 90s. Just like yesterday, it will be quite humid with an easterly breeze with gusts approaching 20mph. This will not only carry over some extra clouds during the day, but it will also bring in a few passing showers from time to time.

Through the evening, expect a few rain areas to move out by the coast and eventually over the Gulf waters tonight. Expect partly cloudy skies during the overnight period, with temperatures by morning near 70°.

We'll be watching a batch of tropical moisture just off to our east and southeast associated with a weak tropical wave. The influx of moisture across Southwest Florida will enhance our rain prospects Wednesday and especially Thursday as it interacts with an approaching front. This means rain becomes a bit more widespread across the area. As a result, daytime highs will be held down in the upper 80s. A few showers will linger through early Friday, with clearing skies late in the day. This will give way to a sunnier weekend with lower humidity as over gift temperatures dip into the lower half of the 60s. Afternoons will stay pretty warm though, with temperatures in the upper 80s.

"Our intelligence experts are combing through every detail of the video for clues that might help in the ongoing efforts."

IN THE VIDEO THE KIDNAPPERS THE ISLAMIC FUNDAMENTALIST GROUP "BOKO HARAM" OFFER A TRADE: SOME 200 GIRLS FOR FOR THE RELEASE OF ITS PRISONERS.

IN THE PAST, BOKO HARAM HAS BEEN PAID MILLIONS FOR THE RELEASE OF HOSTAGES.

EXPERTS DISAGREE ON WHETHER NIGERIA WILL NEGOTIATE.

"The govt of Nigeria has no intention to pay ransom or to buy the girls."

"The best we can hope for at this point is quiet negotiation which keeps them safe, which gives you more time to identify where the vast majority are and potentially some sort of rescue."

RIGHT NOW THE U-S HAS ABOUT 50 PEOPLE THERE FROM THE STATE DEPARTMENT AND THE PENTAGON.

COMMUNICATIONS. SECURITY AND MEDICAL EXPERTS. AND FBI HOSTAGE NEGOTIATORS.

--REPORTER PKG-AS FOLLOWS--

L-A CLIPPERS OWNER DONALD STERLING SAYS HE JUST MADE A TERRIBLE MISTAKE.

"It's painful to me, because I'm not a racist, and I've never been a racist."

DESPITE TALK OF PLAYERS POSSIBLY BOYCOTTING GAMES, STERLING SAYS THEY DON'T HATE HIM.

"I contend that they love me."

"You think the players love you?"

"Of course, they do."

IN HIS FIRST TELEVISED INTERVIEW SINCE THE START OF THE MEDIA FIRESTORM, STERLING DID NOT SKIRT TALK ABOUT RACE.

"Jews, when they get successful, they will help their people, and some of the African-Americans -- maybe I'll get in trouble again -- they don't want to help anybody."

SPECIFICALLY, HE WENT AFTER N-B-A LEGEND MAGIC JOHNSON.

"Big Magic Johnson, what has he done?"

"Well, he's a business person."

"He's got AIDS! Did he do any business, did he help anybody in South LA?

"Well, I think he has HIV; he doesn't actually have full-blown AIDS anymore."

"Well, what kind of a guy goes to every city, has sex with every girl, then he catches HIV. Is that someone we want to respect and tell our kids about? I think he should be ashamed of himself."

N-B-A COMMISSIONER ADAM SILVER RELEASED A STATEMENT, SAYING IN PART:, "WHILE MAGIC JOHNSON DOESN'T NEED ME TO, I FEEL COMPELLED ON BEHALF OF THE N-B-A FAMILY TO APOLOGIZE TO HIM THAT HE CONTINUES TO BE DRAGGED INTO THIS SITUATION AND BE DEGRADED BY SUCH A MALICIOUS AND PERSONAL ATTACK,"

BUT THERE WILL BE ATHLETES WHO'LL ADMIRE AND EMBRACE HIM.

"I wouldn't be surprised if somewhere along the line the next kid to come out will be a high school football player./ look at michael sam look at what he accomplished on the field he was the best player in the sec the most macho football conference there is."

WEATHER-WX WALL


!!!NEED WX ANCHOR CG!!!

Our mostly sunny and tranquil weather continued as we got the new work week started. It was also pretty hot with daytime highs topping out in the lower to middle 90s as there was not much of a cooling effect from the seabreeze. Rain prospects will be on the rise over the next several days as tropical moisture moves in from the east and southeast.

After a mild and muggy start to the day, temperatures will continue to rise through the lunchtime hour as they approach the middle 80s. Partly sunny skies will take over through much of the afternoon, while temperatures climb into the lower 90s. Just like yesterday, it will be quite humid with an easterly breeze with gusts approaching 20mph. This will not only carry over some extra clouds during the day, but it will also bring in a few passing showers from time to time.

Through the evening, expect a few rain areas to move out by the coast and eventually over the Gulf waters tonight. Expect partly cloudy skies during the overnight period, with temperatures by morning near 70°.

We'll be watching a batch of tropical moisture just off to our east and southeast associated with a weak tropical wave. The influx of moisture across Southwest Florida will enhance our rain prospects Wednesday and especially Thursday as it interacts with an approaching front. This means rain becomes a bit more widespread across the area. As a result, daytime highs will be held down in the upper 80s. A few showers will linger through early Friday, with clearing skies late in the day. This will give way to a sunnier weekend with lower humidity as over gift temperatures dip into the lower half of the 60s. Afternoons will stay pretty warm though, with temperatures in the upper 80s.

HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


PKG:

BREAST IS BEST- MOST EXPERTS AGREE AND A GROWING NUMBER OF MOMS DO TOO. ELYSE PICKETT IS A NEW MOM WHO BELIEVES SHE'S GIVING HER BABY A BOOST IN LIFE.

ELYSE PICKETT/BREASTFEEDING MOM

RUNS:

:57 The antibodies that she gets from my breast milk versus formula.

MANY "ingredients" have been identified in breast milk that cannot be duplicated in formula. In fact, the benefits of breastfeeding are so well established that the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends women breastfeed their infants for at least one year. Exclusively for the first six months.

JUANA RODRIGUEZ/CERTIFIED LACTATION CONSULTANT

RUNS:

2:09 Human babies are supposed to get human milk, so that's why we promote mother's milk.

JUANA RODRIGUEZ IS A LACTATION CONSULTANT WITH LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM.

JUANA RODRIGUEZ/CERTIFIED LACTATION CONSULTANT

RUNS:

3:46 We do try to encourage the mom and give her all the opportunities to put her baby to breast. So she has a few practices before she goes home.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

There is no disputing breast milk does a body good. in addition to strengthening a baby's immune system and protecting it from infections, a slew of studies show it helps prevent diseases and medical conditions.

RHONDA HARPER/CERTIFIED LACTATION CONSULTANT

RUNS:

2:30 To impact a difference in a child having cancer, digestive disorders that can be debilitating. Those issues are decreased significantly with the breast milk. 1:58 There is evidence to support that infants that are breastfed do not face the issues associated with obesity.

THERE IS ALSO THE COST BONUS, COMPARED TO THE EXPENSE OF BOTTLE-FEEDING.

RHONDA HARPER/CERTIFIED LACTATION CONSULTANT

RUNS:

9:11 Conservatively speaking, 3,500-5,000 dollars for one year of formula-feeding.

ELYSE PICKETT/BREASTFEEDING MOM

RUNS:

5:07 We don't have to clean bottles, we don't have to clean a pump. It's pretty much just her and I.

FOR ELYSE, IT'S AN EXPERIENCE THAT YOU CAN'T PUT A PRICE TAG ON.
