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.

TRACKING MORE STORM CHANCES

The onshore flow continued on Thursday, with scattered downpours and storms developing in coastal areas and then moving inland. This activity may try to push back into the Urban Corridor this evening as temps fall into the 80s. The rain and storms will slowly end overnight, with lows in the mid to upper 70s.

Storm chances will continue into Friday, but with some changes. Winds will shift to the south and east, ending the morning rainfall threat. However, scattered PM showers and storms will likely be a good bet in the Urban Corridor, with activity diminishing in the evening. Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s.

More moisture works into the area for the weekend, increasing the rain and storm chances. The activity still looks to be scattered, but coverage will likely be greater than during the work week. Highs both Saturday and Sunday will be in the low 90s.

The extra moisture looks to linger into early next week, keeping PM storm chances elevated. As we move into Tuesday and Wednesday, some slightly drier air will arrive, reducing the coverage of the PM activity.

TROPICAL UPDATE

We are still keeping a close eye on a tropical system east of the Lesser Antilles. This system looks stronger than Wednesday and the National Hurricane Center said it is nearing tropical depression status.

The hurricane center has given this system a 70% chance of development, but it could become a Tropical Depression later tonight.

All the forecast guidance has this system still impacting the Lesser and Greater Antilles, before moving northwest toward the Bahamas. It does not look like this system will impact Florida.

Elsewhere, no major activity is expected over the next 5 days. Return to index of stories...

:28:07 weve been blessed not to have that type of issue, but we have had some children were they are hot and sweaty theyre body is still compensating.

BUT STATEWIDE THIS YEAR - TWO CHILDREN HAVE DIED.

nat pop-??

Francine Donnorummo,

Asst. State Attorney

:32:28 sometimes we see they've been left in a car and it's still just a second degree misdemeanor and people should know better by know.

IN 2007- IT BECAME A CRIME IN FLORIDA --

TO LEAVE A CHILD, SIX YEARS OR YOUNGER IN A CAR FOR MORE THAN 15 MINUTES.

DESPITE THE LAW - PARENTS STILL DO IT.

Francine Donnorummo,

Asst. State Attorney

:32:17 it's very frustrating

Hollie Hojek Standup

In the last 16 years, over 600 kids have died in hot cars. To put that into perspective there is a remembrance wall at today's event, with the names of every single child who's died. In 2014 when this wall was made it said 17-- there have been two since then, bringing the total to 19.

Reggie McKinnon, Daughter Died in Hot Car

:36:14 I wish it were zero.

REGINALD MCKINNON LOST HIS DAUGHTER PEYTON IN 20-10 AFTER HE FORGOT HER IN THE BACKSEAT OF HIS TRUCK.

SINCE PEYTON'S DEATH - 170 MORE KIDS HAVE DIED IN HOT CARS.

Donnurummo

:32:50 Do we need to be doing something else?

Is there anything else we can do?

I dont know! I think making people aware over and over again and making the community almost accountable. If you see a kid in a car,

YOU take action.

AND IN FLORIDA IF YOU SEE A CHILD ALONE IN A CAR -- YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BREAK IN AND SAVE THEM.
