Today's Weather Story

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.

CHANCES FOR STRONG STORMS AGAIN FRIDAY

Some minor flooding was reported in parts of Lee County as strong storms rolled through Thursday afternoon. Some spots picked up over 3" of rain. Another round of those types of storms will be possible again Friday. However, a hint of Saharan Dust will try and move in from the Atlantic this afternoon which, in theory, should dry the air and lower the overall storm potential. Taking that with a grain of salt or dust, no pun intended, will still mention the chances for isolated strong storms again Friday.

Highs Friday will be near normal. Calling it 92° in Ft. Myers and 89° in Naples. As the sun sets and the clouds move out overnight, temperatures will drop down to the low 70s before waking up Saturday morning.

Rain chances ramp back up heading into the weekend. Expect scattered showers and storms during the afternoon both Saturday & Sunday. Highs both days will be around 92°.

Beach plans for the weekend look pretty good. A few pre-dawn showers are possible and can't completely rule out an isolated shower sneaking over the coastal areas during any afternoon this weekend.

Tropical Update

It remains very quiet in the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea and the open waters of the Atlantic. Two areas of Saharan dust will keep a lid on any activity over the next week.

No major activity is expected over the next 5 days. Return to index of stories...

5:30 WEATHER LEAD-WX WALL


Today's Weather Story

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.

CHANCES FOR STRONG STORMS AGAIN FRIDAY

Some minor flooding was reported in parts of Lee County as strong storms rolled through Thursday afternoon. Some spots picked up over 3" of rain. Another round of those types of storms will be possible again Friday. However, a hint of Saharan Dust will try and move in from the Atlantic this afternoon which, in theory, should dry the air and lower the overall storm potential. Taking that with a grain of salt or dust, no pun intended, will still mention the chances for isolated strong storms again Friday.

Highs Friday will be near normal. Calling it 92° in Ft. Myers and 89° in Naples. As the sun sets and the clouds move out overnight, temperatures will drop down to the low 70s before waking up Saturday morning.

Rain chances ramp back up heading into the weekend. Expect scattered showers and storms during the afternoon both Saturday & Sunday. Highs both days will be around 92°.

Beach plans for the weekend look pretty good. A few pre-dawn showers are possible and can't completely rule out an isolated shower sneaking over the coastal areas during any afternoon this weekend.

Tropical Update

It remains very quiet in the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea and the open waters of the Atlantic. Two areas of Saharan dust will keep a lid on any activity over the next week.

No major activity is expected over the next 5 days. Return to index of stories...

NICOTENE STUDY-PKG


ELECTRONIC CIGARETTES. OR E-CIGS. THEY'RE BECOMING THE NEW CRAZE TO REPLACE TRADITIONAL TOBACCO CIGARETTES.

THEY'RE MARKETED AS THE SMARTER ALTERNATIVE. LIKE IN THIS BLU COMMERCIAL STARRING JENNY MACARTHY. SIMPLY ENTITLED *FREEDOM.*

TAKE A LOOK AT E-CIG MAKER *MISTIC'S* DESCRIPTION OF ITS PRODUCT ONLINE. "UNLIKE TOBACCO PRODUCTS, MISTIC ECIGS DON'T CONTAIN HUNDREDS OF HARMFUL CHEMICALS.

BUT, ACCORDING TO NEW RESEARCH OUT OF VIRGINIA TECH. THEY DO CONTAIN ONE. AND THAT MAY BE QUITE ENOUGH.

"This is a powerful drug. Our important finding is that nicotine alone can be a potential causative agent in developing cancer. We can show that it is really a mutigen or a carcinogen which it's currently not classified as that."

THAT IS IMPORTANT NEWS FOR MANY PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD. IT'S ESTIMATED THAT THE E-CIGARETTE INDUSTRY WILL BRING IN MORE THAN TWO BILLION DOLLARS IN GLOBAL SALES THIS YEAR. AND MORE THAN 16 MILLION AMERICANS HAVE USED THIS TYPE OF PRODUCT.

HAROLD GARNER HAS BEEN WORKING WITH HIS TEAM ON THIS TYPE OF RESEARCH FOR YEARS NOW. AND HE SAYS THAT WHILE PRODUCTS LIKE E-CIGS OR NICOTINE PATCHES ARE CERTAINLY HEALTHIER ALTERNATIVES TO REGULAR CIGARETTES. USERS SHOULD BEWARE.

"We should be very careful on how we use this drug."

"So if you are a traditional user of tobacco cigarettes and you're thinking about picking up ecigarettes or a product like these to help you put these down, there's a couple recommendations that researchers want you to keep in mind."

"I would suggest you go by the lowest dose that you can live with, and make sure that you are not addicted to the product for a long time." Return to index of stories...
