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.

"Afternoon downpours"

Over the last couple of days, our atmosphere has become a bit more unstable allowing for storms to form across the peninsula. Over the next few afternoons, we'll be tracking increasing rain prospects as we begin our transition into the rainy season.

Mostly sunny skies will take us into the lunch hour, but as we head through the afternoon clouds will be on the increase. Much of the day will end up dry, and temperatures will climb into the lower 90s area wide. As the seabreeze kicks in, beaches will cool into the upper 80s and we'll notice a scattering of downpours and storms late in the day, especially across our urban locations.

Just like the last few days, any leftover rains will eventually make their way closer to the coast before heading out over the gulf waters. Overnight, skies will become partly cloudy and temperatures will settle into lower 70s.

As moisture increases across Southwest Florida, expect the showers and storms to become a little more widespread by Thursday. Afternoon highs will remain in the upper 80s with plenty of humidity. Overnight lows will stay seasonable in the lower 70s. Scattered rain will stay in the forecast through Friday, before slightly drier weather moves in by early next week.

FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA IS GOING AFTER HOUSE REPUBLICANS FOR CONSIDERING CHANGES TO THE NATION'S HEALTHY SCHOOL LUNCH POLICY.

DC FOOD FIGHT-PKG


"It's unacceptable to me not just as first lady but as a mother."

FIGHTING WORDS FROM THE FIRST LADY -- SENDING A MESSAGE TO HOUSE REPUBLICANS WHO WANT TO RELAX SCHOOL NUTRITION STANDARDS SHE FOUGHT FOR FOUR YEARS AGO.

"The last thing we can afford to do right now is to play politics with our kids health, especially when we're finally starting to see some progress on this issue."

IT'S PART OF A RARE POLITICAL PUSH BY MRS OBAMA TO BATTLE A BILL THAT WOULD GIVE SCHOOLS FACING FINANCIAL PROBLEMS AN EXTRA YEAR TO COMPLY WITH RULES TO LIMIT FAT AND SODIUM AND ENCOURAGE MORE FRUITS AND VEGETABLES IN SCHOOL MEALS.

THE MOM-IN-CHIEF IS KNOWN FOR HER LET'S MOVE CAMPAIGN AGAINST CHILDHOOD OBESITY, HER WHITE HOUSE GARDEN AND HER FOCUS ON HEALTH EATING.

BUT SHE HASN'T WADED INTO THE POLITICAL FIGHTS AT THE OTHER END OF PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE UNTIL NOW.

"Parents have a right to expect their kids will get decent food in our schools and we all have a right to expect that our hard-earned taxpayer dollars won't be spent on junk food for our kids."

SUPPORTERS OF THE LEGISLATION SAY SOME SCHOOL DISTRICTS ARE STRUGGLING TO FIND CHEAP, HEALTHY OPTIONS AND NEED MORE TIME TO MAKE SURE KIDS WILL EAT THE HEALTHIER FOODS, NOT JUST THROW THEM AWAY.

"We're not saying let's put junk food back on the serving line. For most districts that hasn't been part of the school meal in many, many years. But we want to make sure that students are comfortable with these changes and are willing to take what's offered to them and will find it acceptable and enjoyable." Return to index of stories...

PRETEEN JULIAN SPENCER IS LIKE MOST BOYS HIS AGE- WITH ONE BIG EXCEPTION.

JULIAN SPENCER/HAS TYPE 1 DIABETES

RUNS:

2:18 Other then checking my blood sugar, that only takes a minute, it doesn't really get in the way.

JULIAN IS ONE OF A GROWING NUMBER OF CHILDREN DIAGNOSED WITH DIABETES. HE HAS TYPE 1 MEANING HIS PANCREAS MAKES LITTLE OR NO INSULIN.

DR. CAYCE JEHAIMI/PEDIATRIC ENDOCRINOLOGIST

RUNS:

:53 Type one is the underlying autoimmune disease.

DR. CAYCE JEHAIMI IS A SPECIALIST WITH GOLISANO CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL. AND JULIAN'S DOCTOR.

DR. CAYCE JEHAIMI/PEDIATRIC ENDOCRINOLOGIST

RUNS:

6:45 There's no question autoimmune disease, in particular Type 1 diabetes, has been increasing in incidents rate over the last decade. We think the environment plays a big role.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

The CDC reports both forms of diabetes are on the rise in people under 20. Type 1 climbed 21% over a nine year period, While Type 2, the acquired form of diabetes, shot up 30% in the same time-frame. Every case carries an extra lifetime burden of managing the condition to avoid complications.

JULIAN DEMO

RUNS:

:30 This is a logbook. I put my blood sugars and how much insulin I give myself and the number of carbs.

AT A YOUNG AGE, JULIAN KNOWS THE IMPORTANCE OF CLOSELY MONITORING HIS ILLNESS.

CHRIS SPENCER/DAD

RUNS:

3:11 It's not easy. If you go to a restaurant you're basically guessing what the carbs are in the meal so it's difficult and it continues to be difficult. But on a day-to-day basis when things aren't out of the ordinary we have a pretty good handle on it.

DOCTORS MADE GREAT PROGRESS TREATING TYPE 1, BUT HAVE AN UPHILL CLIMB WITH THE OBESITY-LINKED TYPE 2.

DR. CAYCE JEHAIMI/PEDIATRIC ENDOCRINOLOGIST

RUNS:

13:32 We want to make sure that the child has a life as normal as possible. And we don't want to reinforce the image because you have diabetes you have to quit volleyball or quit swimming. You can have a normal life.

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.

"Afternoon downpours"

Over the last couple of days, our atmosphere has become a bit more unstable allowing for storms to form across the peninsula. Over the next few afternoons, we'll be tracking increasing rain prospects as we begin our transition into the rainy season.

Mostly sunny skies will take us into the lunch hour, but as we head through the afternoon clouds will be on the increase. Much of the day will end up dry, and temperatures will climb into the lower 90s area wide. As the seabreeze kicks in, beaches will cool into the upper 80s and we'll notice a scattering of downpours and storms late in the day, especially across our urban locations.

Just like the last few days, any leftover rains will eventually make their way closer to the coast before heading out over the gulf waters. Overnight, skies will become partly cloudy and temperatures will settle into lower 70s.

As moisture increases across Southwest Florida, expect the showers and storms to become a little more widespread by Thursday. Afternoon highs will remain in the upper 80s with plenty of humidity. Overnight lows will stay seasonable in the lower 70s. Scattered rain will stay in the forecast through Friday, before slightly drier weather moves in by early next week.
