FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


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.

We'll be dodging downpours through this Tuesday evening as spotty rain continues to roam in from the Gulf of Mexico. Some of the rain may be quite heavy, and a few of these downpours could also produce lightning along with gusty winds.

We'll keep rain chances in play through the overnight into Wednesday morning as our winds continue to come in from the Gulf, which is a weather pattern that favors morning showers.

Aside from seeing scattered rain through the next couple of days, expect a partly sunny sky with temperatures topping out in the upper 80s to lower 90s.

Some isolated rain will be possible again Thursday morning, and then we transition into seeing more of an afternoon storm pattern by Friday and into the upcoming weekend.

TROPICAL UPDATE

We're tracking a tropical wave in the central Atlantic that's been becoming better organized over the last couple of days.

It's a good possibility that this feature will develop into a tropical depression or perhaps even a tropical storm over the next couple days.

The track through the end of the week will be west and northwest, taking this feature toward the Windward Islands by the weekend.

Most forecast models suggest this storm eventually curve to the north by next week, which would keep the storm away from the U.S. mainland. Return to index of stories...

10, 15 minutes.

ALONG THE WAY THE 7-YEAR-OLD PASSED THIS PUBLIC POOL. SOMEONE THERE ASKED HIM WHERE HIS MOM WAS.

They asked me a couple questions and I got scared so I ran off to the park and then they called the cops.

DOMINIC WAS PLAYING IN THE PARK WHEN POLICE PULLED UP.

They said where does your mom live?

OFFICERS TOOK HIM HOME AND ARRESTED HIS MOM FOR CHILD NEGLECT. GAINEY SAYS SHE WAS SHOCKED.

My own bondsman said my parents would have been in jail every day.

THE OFFICER WROTE IN THE REPORT THAT DOMINIC WAS UNSUPERVISED AT THE PARK AND THAT QUOTE - NUMEROUS SEX OFFENDERS RESIDE IN THE VICINITY.

He just basically kept going over that there's pedophiles.

BUT GAINEY SAYS SHE BELIEVES DOMINIC IS MATURE ENOUGH TO GO TO THE PARK ALONE DURING THE DAY. SHE ADDS HE ALWAYS HAS A CELL PHONE.

WHICH SHE CALLS TO CHECK ON HIM.

GRASS STILL GROWS HERE, BUT MAYBE NOT FOR LONG.

Gene Simpson, Opposes parking lot "I think it's a waste of people money, I think they just want to do something with the land."

GENE SIMPSON IS TALKING ABOUT THE TOWN OF FORT MYERS BEACH.

THE TOWN PURCHASED THIS LOT MONTHS AGO WITH PLAN OF MAKING IT INTO A PARKING LOT FOR THE MOUND HOUSE - ONE OF ESTERO ISLAND'S BIGGEST TOURIST ATTRACTIONS THAT ONLY OFFERS A FEW PARKING SPACES TO VISITORS RIGHT NOW.

Penny Jarrett, Mound House "Having the parking lot issue resolved and being able to use the lot for the reason it was purchased for would be really wonderful."

RIGHT NOW, THE TOWN PAYS TO RENT PARKING FROM THIS NEARBY CHURCH WHEN THEY GET TOO CROWDED - THEN, TOURISTS ARE SHUTTLED IN.

Phoebe Godfrey, Supports parking lot "Instead of having the church and having people shuttled which seems a little absurd. ya know, it's closer."

IT'S HARD GETTING LONG TIME NEIGHBORS ON CONNECTICUT STREET TO STEP ON BOARD WITH THAT, THOUGH.

NOT ONLY IS THERE AN EYESORE CONCERN, BUT OTHERS ARE CONVINCED PEOPLE ARE GOING TO USE IT FOR BEACH PARKING

Gene Simpson, Opposes parking lot "They gonna be comin' down here, parkin' and tehey gonna end up getting people hurt or killed ya know traffic going to be so bad."
