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.

NCREASING STORM CHANCES

It was another brutally hot and humid day across the entire area, with highs pushing into the mid 90s area wide. A few storms did develop today, and this activity will diminish this evening as temps only fall into the 80s. Expect a very humid overnight, with warm lows in the mid to upper 70s.

Rain and storm chances will be increasing starting Thursday. More moisture will work into the area, bringing better chance for PM showers and storms across the area. Highs on Thursday will be in the low to mid 90s.

Even more moisture will push in on Friday, again increasing rain and storm chances. The best chance for activity will be in the afternoon hours, with temps in the low 90s.

The more typical rainy season weather pattern continues for the weekend. Expect plenty of morning sun with PM showers and storms developing. Highs both Saturday and Sunday will be in the low 90s.

The PM rain and storm chances continue into next week, with temps next week holding in the low 90s.

TROPICAL UPDATE

We are still nice and quiet in the tropics as we move toward the end of June. No major activity is expected over the next 5 days. Return to index of stories...

Michael Simonik, Humane Society Exec. Dir.

People feel for them if they've lost their pet so they want to donate to help find it.

THE HUMANE SOCIETY OF NAPLES SAYS ITS 100 COLLECTION BOXES GENERATE 15 THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR.

THAT'S CRUCIAL REVENUE THE GROUP IS TRYING TO PROTECT.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR MICHAEL SIMONIK SAYS SOMEONE IS GOING AROUND TOWN PUTTING OUT THESE BOXES.

BUSINESS OWNER ERIC BRIX TELLS NBC2 THE MYSTERY MAN STOPPED BY HIS STORE MONDAY.

--SOT---

He advised me he was working for the Humane Society. He was not from even Florida.

BRIX TELLS US HE NOTICED TWO MORE RED FLAGS.

10:16:46-:57

The fact that it didn't seem like something they would do and the fact that I already have a donation box from the Humane Society here in Naples.

SHE SAYS HE DROPPED OFF THE BOX, LEAVING WITHOUT GIVING HIS NAME OR HOW TO GET AHOLD OF HIM.

AND ANY PROFITS GO TO THE BOX'S OWNER.

BUT THE HUMANE SOCIETY CALLS IS MISLEADING AT THE VERY LEAST.

---SOT---

MICHAEL

10:05:41-:48

It's very frustrating because it's unfortunate because we feel for the people who think they're donating to a certain cause and that's not where the money's going. It's just going in someone's pocket. Return to index of stories...
