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.

ANOTHER ROUND OF HEAVY DOWNPOURS

Lots of heat and humidity will be in place again today. The day starts with mainly clear skies, but that will change quickly. Clouds will start to build through the morning. We could get a couple of downpours to wash ashore through the later morning time frame. More scattered storms will be popping up by midday and continuing through the afternoon and evening. Again today some of these storms will bring heavy downpours with lots of thunder and lightning. High temperatures will top out in the upper 80s near the coastline to the lower 90s inland. With lots of humidity, it will feel like we are near 100 degrees.

Looking ahead toward the end of the week and into the weekend, the coverage of afternoon storms will decrease to around 30% and highs will be in the lower 90s.

TROPICAL DEPRESSION UPDATE

Tropical Depression 2 is still moving on a westerly course toward the Windward Islands of the Caribbean and is expected to weaken over the next couple of days as it fights drier air and wind shear. Return to index of stories...

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.

ANOTHER ROUND OF HEAVY DOWNPOURS

Lots of heat and humidity will be in place again today. The day starts with mainly clear skies, but that will change quickly. Clouds will start to build through the morning. We could get a couple of downpours to wash ashore through the later morning time frame. More scattered storms will be popping up by midday and continuing through the afternoon and evening.

With lots of humidity, it will feel like we are near 100 degrees.

Looking ahead toward the end of the week and into the weekend, the coverage of afternoon storms will decrease to around 30% and highs will be in the lower 90s.

THE U-S INSISTS REBELS SHOT DOWN MALAYSIA FLIGHT MH-17 WITH A MISSILE FROM RUSSIA. THEN BRAGGED ABOUT IT ONLINE:

"There were ample social media accounts to indicate that an SA-11 system that appeared to be missing one specific missile was being transported back across the border from Ukraine to Russia. There were also social media accounts of separatists talking about shooting down an airplane."

BUT THE U-S THINKS IT WAS A MISTAKE. THAT THE REBELS THOUGHT THIS WAS A TRANSPORT PLANE.

LAWMAKERS IN WASHINGTON WANT TO PUT PRESSURE ON MOSCOW:

California

"Stop transferring missiles across borders and handing them to separatists or terrorist organizations."

INVESTIGATORS SAW THE SIX-MILE DEBRIS FIELD FOR THE FIRST TIME TUESDAY. INTERNATIONAL MONITORS SAY THERE'S NO SECURITY. AND IT APPEARS SOME OF THE DEBRIS WAS MOVED OR ALTERED.

"It appeared that again that big cone section had been more or less split into two. And also there could have been possible changes to the tail fin as well."
