5:00 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.

PASSING AM DOWNPOURS

Our Tuesday morning starts with a few isolated showers already moving ashore. We will keep the opportunity for passing downpours to move ashore through the morning and midday time frame. A few storms may linger into the afternoon, most of which will be inland.

Aside from a few passing downpours, expect a mix of sunshine and clouds with temperatures warming into the low to mid 90s. Heat index values will reach to near 100 degees this afternoon, so be sure the take breaks and drink plenty of water if you plan to be outside for any length of time today.

We'll see another uptick in rain chances by Wednesday as more moisture builds in from the north, and with our winds coming in from the Gulf, rain will be possible during the morning hours as well.

We continue with scattered rain and storms in our forecast from Thursday into the weekend, but the weekend activity likely won't affect us until the afternoon and evening.

Highs will stay in the lower 90s and lows in the mid and upper 70s through the next 7 days.

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 by the middle of the week. The National Hurricane Center has pegged the wave with a 70% chance of development in the next two days and 80% in the next five.

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

Most forecast models suggest this storm eventually curve to the north by next week, but it's still too soon to know for sure. We'll continue tracking this tropical wave throughout the week in the NBC 2 First Alert Hurricane Tracker Center. Return to index of stories...

PILOT EMERGENCY TRAINING-PLASMA VO PLASMA


NBC2 WANTED TO KNOW WHAT PILOTS ARE TRAINED TO DO WHEN A PLANE LOSES POWER.

WE SPOKE TO SEVERAL PILOTS-

THEY TELL US-

THEY HAVE FEW OPTIONS WHEN THEY'RE FLYING AT LOW ALTITUDES.

BECAUSE OF THAT, LANDING ON A HIGHWAY, PARKING LOT OR EVEN A BEACH ARE ALL OPTIONS.

BUT BECAUSE THE VICTIMS IN THIS CASES LIKELY HEARD NOTHING -

EXPERIENCED PILOTS SAY LANDING JUST 10 YARDS OFF SHORE COULD HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE IN THIS CASE. Return to index of stories...

HOWEVER.

IT WOULD NOT AFFECT CAPE CORAL HOSPITAL --

SINCE IT IS PART OF THE LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM --

AND SINCE THE PROPOSED ORDINANCE IS FOR THE CITY --

THE HOSPITAL WOULD BE EXEMPT. Return to index of stories...

Highs will stay in the lower 90s and lows in the mid and upper 70s through the next 7 days.

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 by the middle of the week. The National Hurricane Center has pegged the wave with a 70% chance of development in the next two days and 80% in the next five.

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

Most forecast models suggest this storm eventually curve to the north by next week, but it's still too soon to know for sure. We'll continue tracking this tropical wave throughout the week in the NBC 2 First Alert Hurricane Tracker Center. 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.

PASSING AM DOWNPOURS

Our Tuesday morning starts with a few isolated showers already moving ashore. We will keep the opportunity for passing downpours to move ashore through the morning and midday time frame. A few storms may linger into the afternoon, most of which will be inland.

Aside from a few passing downpours, expect a mix of sunshine and clouds with temperatures warming into the low to mid 90s. Heat index values will reach to near 100 degees this afternoon, so be sure the take breaks and drink plenty of water if you plan to be outside for any length of time today.

We'll see another uptick in rain chances by Wednesday as more moisture builds in from the north, and with our winds coming in from the Gulf, rain will be possible during the morning hours as well.

We continue with scattered rain and storms in our forecast from Thursday into the weekend, but the weekend activity likely won't affect us until the afternoon and evening.

Highs will stay in the lower 90s and lows in the mid and upper 70s through the next 7 days.
