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.

SPOTTY STORMS THIS EVENING

Isolated downpours and thunderstorms are expected this evening in Southwest Florida. Any storms that do develop will bring the chance for locally heavy rain with some strong wind gusts and frequent lightning.

Rain and thunder activity that is able to appear on radar this evening should generally migrate westward over the Gulf late this evening and be out of the picture after midnight. Temperatures are expected to return to the low 70s early Thursday morning.

Scattered showers and storms are expected in the region both Thursday and Friday. Temperatures are anticipated to reach 89 degrees on both afternoons.

A reduced chance for storms exists this weekend, with rain prospects returning near 30%. Highs are expected back in the upper 80s and low 90s.

For long range planning, at this point in time it appears a 20 to 30% chance of showers and thunderstorms will be in the region on Monday and Tuesday as we begin the new month of June. High temperatures look to go a touch warmer in the mid-afternoon hours returning near 92 degrees both days. Return to index of stories...

The Clark family was just waking up -

when they discovered they had an announced guest for breakfast.

Davina Clark

Collier County

10:52 10:56

I saw he had knocked our trash can over and was dragging it

It wasn't anyone they knew. but a new neighbor.

A black bear that's now roaming around their house on Oakes Boulevard in Collier County-

Dallas Clark

Collier County

15:14 15:19

there was like a large creature like a deadly one just standing in our yard

for an hour, they watched in amazement as the bear dug through their garbage -

and ate their leftovers -- what they call trash.

Davina Clark

11:15 11:17

Laid down and commenced to have a picnic

The Clarks have lived here since 1997.

In 17 years this was their FIRST bear sighting. up close and very personal.

Davina Clark

12:59 13:02

He got a little close for comfort but I was glad I got to see him

Florida Fish and Wildlife Biologists get black bear complaints on the daily from neighborhoods like the Clarks.

In recent days, they've received a spike in calls from the Oakes Boulevard area and so later this week.

they'll check out the situation, talk to residents and see if the **humans** are really in harm

Ross Scott

Wildlife Biologist, FWC

09:23 09:29

Once they get used to people they lose that fear and that becomes a pretty serious safety issue

Biologists don't want it to get to that point where they have to relocate or even EUTHANIZE bears.

So -- to help out nature, your family and your safety -- they say try to scare the bear first with a loud noise.

If it doesn't move on to find a new food source. then they'll step in and take whatever action is needed to keep residents safe.

In Collier County, Laura Roberts, NBC2. Return to index of stories...
