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.

Not a lot of change heading into the weekend.

Friday brings anther day of hot, humid and stormy conditions. Highs that afternoon will once again run slightly above average. We stay in the low 90s but with the humidity factored in, feeling like upper 90s.

The seabreeze gets going later on in the afternoon and will spark inland storms, some strong. With steering winds out of the southwest, storm tracks should favor northeastward movement however, some showers will likely try and back their way up along the coastline before it's all over.

Mild and muggy conditions will be in place overnight. Lows drop down the mid 70s.

The weekend brings similar conditons. A few coastal morning showers, inland storms during th afternoon and hot highs in the low 90s. Return to index of stories...

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.

Not a lot of change heading into the weekend.

Friday brings anther day of hot, humid and stormy conditions. Highs that afternoon will once again run slightly above average. We stay in the low 90s but with the humidity factored in, feeling like upper 90s.

The seabreeze gets going later on in the afternoon and will spark inland storms, some strong. With steering winds out of the southwest, storm tracks should favor northeastward movement however, some showers will likely try and back their way up along the coastline before it's all over.

Mild and muggy conditions will be in place overnight. Lows drop down the mid 70s.

The weekend brings similar conditons. A few coastal morning showers, inland storms during th afternoon and hot highs in the low 90s. Return to index of stories...

WE ALSO KNOW THIS MORNING THAT AUTHORITIES HAVE RECOVERED THE BLACK BOX.

ITS ANOTHER IN A RECENT SERIES OF DISASTERS IN JUST THE LAST SEVERAL DAYS. AFTER WHAT SEEMED LIKE A LONG PERIOD OF SAFETY IN THE SKIES.

NBC'S TOM COSTELLO REPORTS. Return to index of stories...


ALGERIA PLANE AND OTHERS-PKG


IT'S BEEN A ROUGH SIX MONTHS FOR INTERNATIONAL AVIATION.

ALL TOLD - NEARLY 600-PEOPLE HAVE DIED.

NOW, ANOTHER CRASH:

AIR ALGERIE FLIGHT 5017, AN MD83, FLOWN BY SWIFTAIR, LEFT BURKINA FASO IN AFRICA WITH 116 PEOPLE ON BOARD BUT CRASHED 50-minutes LATER IN BAD WEATHER.

LIKE UKRAINE, NORTHERN MALI IS A WAR ZONE.

IN JUNE, THE FAA WARNED U.S. PILOTS TO AVOID FLYING BELOW 24-thousand feet.

.CITING THE RISK OF "anti-aircraft fire to include shoulder-fired, man-portable air defense systems."

IT'S NOT CLEAR WHAT HAPPENED TO FLIGHT 5017, BUT IT'S THE LATEST IN A STRING OF INCIDENTS:

-A FATAL PASSENGER PLANE CRASH IN TAIWAN WEDNESDAY WITH 48 DEAD.

-U.S. FLIGHTS TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED INTO TEL AVIV.

-THE SHOOTDOWN OF MALAYSIA FLIGHT 17 OVER UKRAINE.

-MALAYSIA FLIGHT 370 REMAINS MISSING, PRESUMABLY 1500 MILES OFF THE COAST OF AUSTRALIA.

-AND A TERROR WATCH FOR ALL U.S.-BOUND FLIGHTS.

"The fact that we've had a cluster of incidents does not materially affect the fact that our skies and the skies around the world are safe."

THE FAA LISTS 63 COUNTRIES, INCLUDING CUBA, YEMEN, NORTH KOREA AND PAKISTAN - WHERE U.S. AIRLINES ARE PROHIBITED FROM FLYING OR SUBJECT TO FLIGHT RESTRICTIONS, AND WARNINGS.

THE SECRETARY OF TRANSPORTATION TODAY:

"As the situation on the ground changes in some of these parts of the world, our guidance perhaps will change."

IN FACT, THE CHANCES ARE VERY GOOD YOUR FLIGHT WILL LAND SAFELY.

:

ACCORDING TO AN MIT STATISTICIAN:

YOUR CHANCES OF BEING KILLED IN A PLANE CRASH ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD ARE ROUGHLY ONE-IN-4-million.

BUT IN NORTH AMERICA AND EUROPE.THAT DROPS TO ONE IN 25-million!

THAT MEANS YOU COULD GO 60-thousand YEARS, FLYING EVERY DAY, BEFORE A FATAL CRASH.

THE LAST FATAL ACCIDENT INVOLVING A US CARRIER WAS IN BUFFALO WHEN 50 PEOPLE DIED. THAT WAS IN 2009.

"In this industry, anybody's accident is everybody's accident and when there is a mishap, something goes wrong, the industry gets together to figure out why and keep it from happening again." Return to index of stories...
