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.

OVERNIGHT AND WEEKEND RAIN CHANCES

Conditions across Southwest Florida look warm and muggy this evening, with lingering rain and thunderstorm activity remaining most widespread across the inland and east coast regions of the Florida peninsula.

There is the chance once again tonight of a few showers or storms developing over the Gulf of Mexico that push toward the coastal communities during the late overnight or early Saturday morning time frames. Overall coverage of this activity is expected to remain isolated.

Bearing the chance of an isolated morning shower or storm along the coast, most of the rain and thunder activity should be an inland event by Saturday afternoon. That means the greatest coverage of afternoon showers and thunderstorms is expected to fire for areas along and east of Interstate 75.

Temperatures on Saturday are expected to top out near 90 at Fort Myers, 88 at Naples and 92 at Immokalee.

As often is the case with thunderstorms this time of year, it's possible a few downpours or storms move back toward the coastal regions on Saturday evening. Overall coverage of this activity would be anticipated to remain rather isolated.

Late afternoon showers or storms triggered by the sea breeze are expected on Father's Day Sunday. Highs should be warm and humid near 91 degrees. Return to index of stories...

TONIGHT A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE REACTING TO VIRAL VIDEO OF A LOUISIANA TOUR GUIDE, FEEDING ALLIGATORS.

oooh!. laughing

JUST TODAY, OFFICIALS IN LOUISIANA HAVE ORDERED ALL SWAMP BOAT TOUR OPERATORS TO STOP FEEDING GATORS.

IF YOU REMEMBER - 2 YEARS AGO - WE HAD OUR OWN GATOR FEEDING INCIDENT.

NBC2'S HEATHER TURCO TALKED WITH THE EXPERTS ABOUT WHY THIS HAS TO STOP Return to index of stories...


GATOR FEED REACTION-PKG


THIS IS THE MOST RECENT VIDEO, THAT HAS SO MANY PEOPLE REACTING.

WHILE EXCITING TO WATCH - THIS STUNT IS INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS.

A LOUISIANA TOUR GUIDE IS CAUGHT ON CAMERA FEEDING CHICKEN TO 2 GATORS, THEN JUMPS IN THE WATER WITH THEM - AND PLACES MARSHMALLOWS IN HIS MOUTH - FOR THE GATORS TO GRAB.

A LOCAL NATURE EXPERT IS APPALLED.

TC

15:04-15:13

All it takes is for a child to be walking by with a bag of marshmallows and then these gators can approach in a dangerous way.

NOW THERE'S NO LAW IN LOUISIANA PROHIBITING LURING AND FEEDING OF ALLIGATORS, BUT IT'S AGAINST LOCAL LAW IN JEFFERSON PARISH - WHERE THESE IMAGES WERE CAPTURED.

AND IT *IS AGAINST THE LAW HERE IN FLORIDA -

BUT THAT DIDN'T STOP EVERGLADES AIRBOAT CAPTAIN, WALLACE WEATHER HOLT FROM ENTICING GATORS,.

TC

14:21-14:26

when gators are fed they become increasingly bold and they will approach humans.

CAPTAIN WALLY, AS HE IS KNOWN, EVENTUALLY LOST HIS HAND, WHEN THE GATOR CHOMPED DOWN.

TIM MARTELL, OWNER OF MANATEE GUIDES NATURE KAYAK TOURS -

TC

14:31-14:43

those gators are eventually going to get larger and they are still going to be interested in obtaining food that is easy to get and they will approach humans and that means a potential disaster.

SO WHILE IT LOOKS LIKE THE GATORS ARE TAME AND THE SITUATION IS UNDER CONTROL - TIM EXPLAINS, NOTHING CAN BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH.
