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.

A few morning showers will be likely to start Wednesday off.

Later on in the afternoon showers and storms will be likely again. Some of which could be on the stronger side. Will keep the clouds around for a good chunk of the day with a few breaks here and there. This will help keep a lid temperatures from getting too hot.

Area wide many will struggle to get out of the upper 80s, those that do stay right around 90° or 91°.

Some storms will still be going heading into the early evening hours tonight. After those fizzle out, clouds begin to dissipate.

Onshore flow will increase the changes for more morning storms again Thursday morning. Overall Thursday's forecast looks to be very similar to what were expecting today.

COMCAST IS APOLOGIZING AFTER ONE OF ITS REPRESENTATIVES HELD A CUSTOMER CAPTIVE ON THE PHONE FOR NEARLY 20 MINUTES -- DEMANDING TO KNOW WHY HE WANTED A DIFFERENT PROVIDER.

LISTEN TO PART OF THE CALL --

:10 CUSTOMER: OK WE'D LIKE TO DISCONNECT.

COMCAST REP: HELP ME UNDERSTAND WHY YOU DONT WANT FASTER INTERNET.

CUSTOMER: HELP ME UNDERSTAND WHY YOU CAN'T JUST DISCONNECT US?:20

COMCAST ISSUED THIS STATEMENT.

THEY SAY THEY'RE EMBARRASSED BY THE EMPLOYEE'S BEHAVIOR AND HOW HE TALKED WITH A CUSTOMER.

THEY CALL IT UNACCETABLE AND ARE INVESTIGATING.

The customer happened to be Ryan Block, co-founder of tech site Engadget. He and his wife said they wanted to cancel their Comcast account over the phone after they switched to another provider, Astound. But when Block's wife was transferred to Comcast's customer retention agent, the employee wouldn't accept that for an answer and repeatedly demanded that they explain further why they would want to switch providers.

Suit: Companies Duped Victims Struggling With Student Loan Debt

"I started the call by saying that we were moving, and that we needed to cancel our service," Block's wife, Veronica Belmont, wrote in the description of the recording on SoundCloud.com. "He asked if we wanted to move our current service. I said no, thank you, but we've already signed up for Astound."

"The representative continued aggressively repeating his questions, despite the answers given, to the point where my wife became so visibly upset she handed me the phone," Block wrote in the audio description. "Overhearing the conversation, I knew this would not be very fun."

A Comcast spokeswoman provided the following statement to ABC News today about the recording: "We are very embarrassed by the way our employee spoke with Mr. Block and are contacting him to personally apologize. The way in which our representative communicated with him is unacceptable and not consistent with how we train our customer service representatives. We are investigating this situation and will take quick action. While the overwhelming majority of our employees work very hard to do the right thing every day, we are using this very unfortunate experience to reinforce how important it is to always treat our customers with the utmost respect."

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.

WIDESPREAD SHOWERS FOR WEDNESDAY

A few morning showers will be likely to start Wednesday off.

Later on in the afternoon showers and storms will be likely again. Some of which could be on the stronger side. Will keep the clouds around for a good chunk of the day with a few breaks here and there. This will help keep a lid temperatures from getting too hot.

Area wide many will struggle to get out of the upper 80s, those that do stay right around 90° or 91°.

Some storms will still be going heading into the early evening hours tonight. After those fizzle out, clouds begin to dissipate.

Onshore flow will increase the changes for more morning storms again Thursday morning. Overall Thursday's forecast looks to be very similar to what were expecting today.
