It was another hot and humid day across the region, with highs in the low 90s. Storms developed much quicker in the urban corridor, and these storms will shut down in the evening time frame. Expect another very humid overnight, with lows in the mid 70s.

More rain and storm chances are ahead for Saturday. We'll see morning sunshine and PM showers and storms developing in the heat of the afternoon. Highs on Saturday will climb into the low 90s.

The weather pattern continues into Sunday. Morning sunshine will again bathe the region, with scattered showers and storms developing in the PM hours. Highs on Sunday will also be in the low 90s.

No major changes are expected as we move into next week. Plenty of sun is expected in the morning, with scattered showers and storms in the PM hours.

The coverage of the storms may be greater Monday - Wednesday.

NOT IRAQ's PRESIDENT NOURI AL MALAKI. A SHIITE. WHO'S SO ALIENATED IRAQI SUNNIS. SOME ARE JOINING WITH ISIS.

WE OBTAINED CRIST'S $541-THOUSAND DOLLAR 2013 RETURN AND IT'S CLEAR THAT HE AND HIS WIFE FILED SEPARATELY.

jo Ann Gooth/ Fort Myers Voter / 34:47 If she's filing individually then why should she have to release that information. 34:50

FLORIDA LAW SAYS SHE DOESN'T HAVE TO.

marcell Cleophat/Cape Coral Voter / 35:25 I think she should release it. If she's not hiding anything. I mean I understand by law she doesn't have to but as the ex-governor's wife she should release her tax retrun. 35:37

governor Scott / 06:28 I'm shocked he doesn't believe in transparency.

IN RESPONSE CRIST RELEASED 10 YEARS WORTH OF HIS OWN TAX RETURNS.

WHILE HIS WIFE MAY BE A MILLIONAIRE SHE EARNED HER MONEY BEFORE THE TWO MARRIED.

leonard Mullock/Fort Myers Voter / 36:55 If she had other than earned income, stocks, bonds or money that comes to her I would say yes. My reason: Money could be transferred into her account. I guess I read to many mystery novels. 37;16

BUT STILL CRIST DISAGREES, TELLING ME "It's important we stay focused and respect our families."

"People who really care what their homes look like why their yards look like they would prefer living in a nicer area."

BACK IN 2012 THE CODE ENFORCEMENT BOARD ISSUED THE HOMEOWNER A 5 YEAR CEASE AND DESIST ORDER-- DURING THAT TIME HE HAD TO KEEP HIS YARD JUNK FREE AND UP TO CODE OR THE COUNTY WOULD STEP IN.

THAT STEP CAME TODAY.

"Well you know it's an eyesore for the neighborhood it's nice to finally see something getting taken care of its a health hazard it's a safety hazard, it's gonna bring with it vermin that we don't need in the neighborhood."

NEIGHBORS TELL ME THE CONSTANT MESS HAS ATTRACTED UNWELCOME GUESTS.
