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.

FLOODING RAIN

Today's very active and wet weather pattern was enhanced with an area of low pressure above south Florida. This feature will continue to bring more downpours and thunderstorms tonight. Rainfall has been excessive today - over 6" in some Naples neighborhoods at the time of this writing - and I expect more downpours tonight. The rain showers should begin to taper off by midnight, but there could still be more showers washing in from the Gulf overnight and through tomorrow morning.

Temperatures will stay in the mid 70's this evening. It is highly likely that there will be more flooding in some places this evening and travel could be difficult tonight after sunset. Many roads and areas with poor drainage will be under water this evening.

Tomorrow's forecast looks better. We will still be under the threat of morning showers or thunderstorms as southwest winds set in for Tuesday. The afternoon threat for thunderstorms will be mainly inland tomorrow and high temperatures will top out around 90 as the clouds break-up in the afternoon. Return to index of stories...

SGT. WILSON TRIBUTE NIGHT-OC, SS, OC


RAIN COULDN'T STOP SOME PEOPLE FROM PARTICIPATING IN THIS YEAR'S SOUTHWEST FL BROTHERHOOD RIDE.

THEIR JOURNEY STARTED ON FRIDAY IN NAPLES AND ENDED IN PORT CHARLOTTE THIS AFTERNOON.

TOMORROW IS THE ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE DEATH OF CHARLOTTE COUNTY SERGEANT MICHAEL WILSON.

HE WAS KILLED WHILE RESPONDING TO A DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CALL AT AN APARTMENT COMPLEX IN PORT CHARLOTTE.

NBC2'S CHRIS GILMORE WAS AT THE FINISH LINE AND SPOKE TO RIDERS WHO KNEW HIM. Return to index of stories...


REMEMBERING SERGEANT WILSON-BNR-PKG


THE FINAL STRETCH WAS A WET ONE FOR THIRTY BROTHERHOOD RIDERS TODAY IN CHARLOTTE COUNTY.

CYCLISTS RODE FROM NORTH NAPLES TO CLEWISTON ON FRIDAY.

THEN THEY HEADED TO PORT ST LUCIE, AND LAKE PLACID FINALLY ENDING THEIR TRIP TODAY IN PORT CHARLOTTE.

350 MILES TO HONOR THE FAMILIES OF FOUR OFFICERS AND DEPUTIES THAT WERE KILLED IN THE LINE OF DUTY IN 2013.

A THREE YEAR RIDER, SGT. WILLIAM GORMAN SAYS THIS YEAR HAD SPECIAL SIGNIFICANCE.

"But when the officer is someone from your own agency who've you've worked with for 20 years, then absolutely. He's family."

FOR HIM THAT DEPUTY IS 20 YR VETERAN SGT MICHAEL WILSON OF THE CHARLOTTE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE.

WILSON WAS SHOT AND KILLED IN THE LINE OF DUTY LAST AUGUST.

"I think it was a very surreal moment, it's something you always know in this field of work can happen but you never really are truly prepared for it until it happens,"

JAROSLAV VANKO WAS AT THE LAKES OF TUSCANA APARTMENT HOME WHEN WILSON ARRIVED ARMED WITH A GUN.

DEPUTIES SAY VENKO SHOT WILSON IN THE CHEST JUST MISSING HIS VEST.

"iF we were to do the same thing over again, Mike wouldn't have done anything different, becuase he did everything right it was a one in a million shot."

IT'S BEEN 30 YEARS SINCE A DEPUTY HAS BEEN KILLED IN CHARLOTTE COUNTY.

AS MUCH AS WILSON'S DEATH LAST YEAR RATTLED THE COMMUNITY, IT ALSO BROUGHT IT TOGETHER.

THE BROTHERHOOD RIDE RAISES MONEY FOR THE FAMILIES OF THE FALLEN.

DEPUTIES LIKE GORMAN RIDE TO MAKE SURE WE DON'T FORGET.

"time doesn't heal a thing, he;s just gone, just gone, we gotta remember remember what Mike did when he was alive becuase that's what made him special the little thngs." Return to index of stories...
