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 RAIN CHANCES FOR THURSDAY

It was an unsettled Wednesday across much of Southwest Florida, with scattered showers and storms and humid highs in the low 90s. The showers and storms will continue this evening, with temps holding in the 80s. More showers and storms will redevelop later tonight, with lows in the low 70s.

More unsettled weather is expected for Thursday. Expect a soggy morning commute, as showers and storms move ashore from the Gulf. The activity will continue through the daytime hours, with highs in the mid to upper 80s. The showers and storms will slowly move eastward late in the day.

Better weather is on the way for Friday. We'll see plenty of sunshine for Friday, low humidity values and highs only in the mid 80s.

The weekend still looks great across the area, with sunshine both Saturday and Sunday. Low humidity will continue, with comfortable highs both days in the mid 80s.

A huge ridge of high pressure will take control of our weather for next week. Expect plenty of sun Monday, with highs in the upper 80s.

The humidity will increase a touch midweek, with temps holding in the upper 80s. No major storm system looks to impact the area for all of next week. Return to index of stories...


TOSS TO CHAD-SS


TONIGHT'S GOOD QUESTION IS ABOUT SOMETHING YOU SEE EVERY TIME YOU DRIVE ON I-75.

ROY IN CAPE CORAL ASKS --

"I SEE MILEAGE SIGNS ON THE INTERSTATE FOR CITIES. WHERE DO THOSE SIGNS ACTUALLY TAKE YOU?"

NBC 2'S CHAD OLIVER FOUND THE ANSWER AND JOINS US TO EXPLAIN. Return to index of stories...


GQ MILEAGE SIGNS-PLASMA


WE USE MILEAGE SIGNS TO GAUGE HOW CLOSE WE ARE TO HOME OR TO A CERTAIN DESTINATION.

THESE AREN'T JUST ROUNDED NUMBERS.

THEY'RE SPECIFIC FOR A REASON. Return to index of stories...


GQ MILEAGE SIGNS-PKG


BEFORE HIGH-TECH GADGETS TRACKED EVERY MILE,

ROAD SIGNS WERE THE ONLY ANSWER TO 'ARE WE THERE YET?'

TWENTY ONE MILES TO FORT MYERS. FIFTY-SIX TO NAPLES. WHERE DO THOSE SPECIFIC NUMBERS ACTUALLY LEAD? TO GET THE ANSWER, WE WENT TO THE AGENCY THAT INSTALL THE SIGNS.

I think we all have a destination don't we?

DEBBIE TOWER IS THE SOURCE FOR ALL THINGS D-O-T IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA.

Florida department of transportation actually designates a central​ location within cities.

THEY'RE CALLED CONTROL POINTS.

IN NAPLES, TAMIAMI TRAIL AND DAVIS BOULEVARD IS THE DESIGNATED POINT.

ROAD SIGNS LEADING TO FORT MYERS ARE CALCULATED FROM THIS SPOT NEAR DOWNTOWN. U-S 41 AND MARTIN LUTHER KING JUNIOR BOULEVARD.

Use that as a control point, measure back to locations along the​ interstate to identify mileage.

SIGNS DON'T LEAD TO CITY LIMITS OR EVEN LANDMARKS. SO HOW DOES D-O-T DECIDE?

We're looking for an intersection. We're looking for something that​ will consistently through time, remain toward the center of the city.

DRIVERS CAN TAKE MULTIPLE ROADS TO GET TO THE SAME SPOT.

TOWER SAYS WHEN D-O-T DOES THE MATH, THEY CHO​O​SE THE *SHORTEST ROUTE.

Chad: A Good Question? Debbie: an excellent question. Return to index of stories...
