FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


"More sun and warmth"

We are coming off of a weekend which featured spectacular weather with cool mornings and warm afternoons. As we progress through the week, temperatures will get a bit of a boost along with higher humidity values.

After a pleasant start to the day with temperatures in the lower to middle 60s, thermometer readings will be on the rise through the mid day hours. Plenty of sunshine will fill our skies, with just a few fair weather clouds moving in from the east. Expect daytime highs to climb into the upper 80s area wide with readings near 90° inland, while the coast stays slightly cooler. Winds will remain breezy through the day with gusts near 20 mph.

As we head into the evening hours, mainly clear skies will persist and temperatures will settle into the upper 70s just after sunset. Quiet weather will return once again tonight with temperatures slowly falling into the middle 60s by morning.

As high pressure remains the dominant feature in our forecast, not much will change as we head into Tuesday and beyond. Expect mostly to partly sunny skies tomorrow afternoon with a breeze out of the east. Daytime highs will top out in the upper 80s to lower 90s, with lows in the middle to upper 60s. Winds will become more southerly by mid week and as a result, our humidity values will begin to creep back up. A mainly dry pattern will hold through the end of the work week with afternoon highs reaching the lower 90s.

Overall, the upcoming weekend looks to be in good shape. We'll see just a few more clouds and a couple of spotty showers by Sunday. Return to index of stories...

MERS LATEST-TRX-VOTOPS-OaniBx-ONCAM


TODAY HEALTH OFFICIALS ARE WARNING THE DEADLY VIRUS, MERS, CAN BE EASIER TO TRANSMIT THAN PREVIOUSLY THOUGHT.

THE CONCERN COMES AFTER A PERSON IN ILLINOIS CONTRACTED MERS AFTER LIMITED CONTACT.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THAT A MYSTERIOUS MIDDLE EAST VIRUS HAS SPREAD FROM ONE PERSON TO ANOTHER IN THE UNITED STATES.

MELISSA MOLLET REPORTS FROM WASHINGTON. Return to index of stories...


MERS LATEST-TRX-PKG


THE CONTACT IN "THIS CASE" CAME STATESIDE DURING A BUSINESS MEETING. JUST 40 MINUTES AND A BRIEF HANDSHAKE BETWEEN AN INFECTED MAN FROM INDIANA WHO'D BEEN WORKING IN SAUDI ARABIA…AND AN ILLINOIS MAN WHO PICKED UP THE INFECTION…

"It looks like this will be the first case in the U.S. of contraction or transmission of MERS, so this makes us very concerned at this point."

THE ILLINOIS MAN ONLY SHOWED SYMPTOMS THROUGH A MILD COLD…HE'S NO LONGER SICK…AND WAS ASKED TO ISOLATE HIMSELF.

BUT THE MAN WHO HAD BEEN IN THE MIDDLE EAST… SPENT SEVERAL WEEKS IN THE HOSPITAL AND IS BETTER.

THE CASES - RAISING NEW QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW THE VIRUS IS TRANSMITTED.

"We have to be very careful about giving people a false sense of security, but at the same time, we have to state that the problem is largely limited to the middle east."

WARNINGS NOW IN AIRPORTS FOR THOSE TRAVELING OVERSEAS.

THE VIRUS IS TRICKY, AS SYMPTOMS RANGE FROM NONE - TO A SEVERE COLD AND RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS.

SOT COVERED W/BROLL

"About two years ago, persons having close contact with camels either handling them or consuming camel products began to develop this infection."

THE VIRUS STARTED IN SAUDI ARABIA BACK IN 2012… THERE IS NO VACCINE OR CURE AND ONLY SYMPTOMS CAN BE TREATED.

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


"More sun and warmth"

We are coming off of a weekend which featured spectacular weather with cool mornings and warm afternoons. As we progress through the week, temperatures will get a bit of a boost along with higher humidity values.

After a pleasant start to the day with temperatures in the lower to middle 60s, thermometer readings will be on the rise through the mid day hours. Plenty of sunshine will fill our skies, with just a few fair weather clouds moving in from the east. Expect daytime highs to climb into the upper 80s area wide with readings near 90° inland, while the coast stays slightly cooler. Winds will remain breezy through the day with gusts near 20 mph.

As we head into the evening hours, mainly clear skies will persist and temperatures will settle into the upper 70s just after sunset. Quiet weather will return once again tonight with temperatures slowly falling into the middle 60s by morning.

As high pressure remains the dominant feature in our forecast, not much will change as we head into Tuesday and beyond. Expect mostly to partly sunny skies tomorrow afternoon with a breeze out of the east. Daytime highs will top out in the upper 80s to lower 90s, with lows in the middle to upper 60s. Winds will become more southerly by mid week and as a result, our humidity values will begin to creep back up. A mainly dry pattern will hold through the end of the work week with afternoon highs reaching the lower 90s.

Overall, the upcoming weekend looks to be in good shape. We'll see just a few more clouds and a couple of spotty showers by Sunday. Return to index of stories...

DEVICES ON VACATION-TRX-PKG


THE NEW REALITY ABOUT MOBILE DEVICES AND VACATIONS. HAS BEEN CONFIRMED BY ONLINE TRAVEL SITE ORBITZ.

"Orbitz found in our traveler's survey that the average family now brings with them seven mobile devices when they are taking a trip"

First part of SOT covered - Back on Cam at:20

"They're wanting to take photos with their devices, post updates to facebook and send out tweets about what they are doing on their vacation"

POSTING THAT YOU'RE OFF ON VACATION IS A FAIRLY WELL-KNOWN NO-NO THESE DAYS.

"What you're doing is you're telling people that you're not home"

BUT WHAT CONCERNS INTERNET SECURITY EXPERTS LIKE MCAFEE'S MICHELLE DENNEDY.

.IS HOW WELL KNOWN ARE THE RULES ABOUT SECURE USE OF MOBILE DEVICES. AMONG YOUR CHILDREN.

"A lot of very young kids are using instagram or other photo sharing sites and they're taking photographs and they're sharing those photographs"

SO, SHE SAYS, SET UP PARENTAL CONTROLS ON DEVICES JUST LIKE YOU SHOULD ON THE DESKTOP AT HOME.

"So do think very holisticly about what kinds of activities they're doing on their devices, what is good and ok for you as a family"

FOR THE REST OF US. THE SAFETY RECOMMENDATIONS ARE: USE ONLY SECURE WI-FI WHILE AWAY. PASSWORD PROTECT ALL YOUR DEVICES. AND EVEN IF YOUR DEVICE BREAKS DOWN, STILL STAY AWAY FROM PUBLIC COMPUTERS.
