THEY THEN DETACHED THREE KAYAKS FROM THE BOAT AND TIED THEM TOGETHER. AND QUICKLY ACTIVATED A BEACON THAT ALERTED RESCUE TEAMS TO THEIR DISTRESS.

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.

Heavy Rains Possible Again Tuesday

A weak area of low pressure continues to move northward across the Florida Peninsula Tuesday. This is the same low pressure which dumped nearly 6 inches of rain around the Naples area Monday afternoon. With ample moisture still present, expect a passing morning showers and another round of storms later on in the day. Some localized flooding will be possible again this afternoon.

Sunshine will be hard to find again for a good chunk of the day Tuesday. With the clouds in place and rain starting around mid day again, will drop temperatures below the normal - in the upper 80s. Return to index of stories...


FUTURE OF SHOPPING-OC

SO HOW WILL WE BE SHOPPING?

IN STORES, OR WILL IT ALL TURN TO ONLINE SHOPPING?

NBC'S COURTNEY REAGAN EXPLORES WHAT A SHOPPING EXCURSION IN THE FUTURE COULD LOOK LIKE. Return to index of stories...


FUTURE OF SHOPPING-PKG


THE FUTURE OF RETAIL IS NOW IN THE MAKING.

IN MANHATTAN STUDIOS.

SILICON VALLEY START-UPS.

AND RETAIL LABS THAT LOOK LIKE ANY OLD STORE BUT ARE SMARTER.

"physical retail is the temple for your brand. It will feel a lot like your digital retail experience."

"so if i'm a shopper, i'm interested in this dress. i can come over to the screen over here… and the screen will pick it up and know what i've got in front of it. you can pick your size and if you've logged in you can add it to your fitting room. so what you're actually doing is creating a shopping cart kind of like you do online."

THE INTERSECTION OF ONLINE INFORMATION, PHYSICAL PRODUCT AND PERSONALIZATION FROM DATA ANALYTICS WILL RE-DEFINE THE RETAIL EXPERIENCE.

BY OPTING IN… RETAILERS WILL KNOW WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE LIKE, AND HOW WE BUY AS SOON AS WE STEP INSIDE.

AND PERSONALIZATION WILL BE PARAMOUNT - LIKE CUSTOMIZING A PAIR OF CONVERSE FOR EVERY SHOPPER IN THE STORE.

"the store knows who you are when you come in, they can promote to you individually based on your buying preferences or purchase history and based upon what they think you will buy based on each individual promotion"

SMART STOREFRONTS THAT SENSE WHAT SPORTS TEAM YOU LIKE AND DISPLAY THE TEAM JERSEY TO PROMPT A PURCHASE.

DIGITAL HALOS AROUND EVERY PRODUCT THAT TELL A STORY -- WHERE IT COMES FROM, HOW IT WAS MADE AND PEER REVIEWS OF ITS PERFORMANCE.

POWERED BY YOUR PERSONAL PREFERENCES AND PARTICULARS -- SMART SHELVES WILL ALSO PROTECT YOU.

"that intelligent shelf, knows that your daughter has a nut allergy, that is really incredibly dangerous. Now imagine that every single product in the store that has nuts in it, peanuts in it, or was made in a factory that had it, they all go dark."

AND THROUGH ALL THESE EXPERIENCES. THE CONSUMER WILL BE IN CONTROL.

"I don't think its a world where you're purely going to walk in and a robot's going to hand you the shirt that you browsed online. there's going to be people that do want that human to human interaction. i think the difference is they'll actually be able to order it on demand, whenever they want it, their way."

ONSHORE WIND PATTERN CONTINUES

Onshore wind from the west and southwest will continue to push in scattered showers from the Gulf of Mexico through this morning and early afternoon.

The wind pattern in place will keep the opportunity for scattered afternoon and evening showers in the region as well. The most widespread coverage of afternoon rain though should mainly pop in the inland areas of the state. Highs today should range from the upper 80s along the immediate coastline to low 90s further inland.

On Wednesday we'll enter a bit of a transition phase with winds become more northwesterly. That should push our most widespread rain opportunities further back in the day toward the afternoon and evening. Highs on Wednesday are expected in the low 90s.

TROPICAL UDPATE

The newly-downgraded Tropical Storm Bertha continues to churn in the Atlantic.

The storm is located well off the east coast of the Carolinas and moving away from the mainland United States to the north-northeast at 22 mph.

Max sustained winds are holding at 65 mph, with a storm central pressure of 1005 mb.

The storm will continue its north-northeast progression and remains no threat to Southwest Florida or the east coast of the U.S. Return to index of stories...

NEW CATHETER-PKG


"I was on my way to see the cardiologist I couldn't even get to the cardiologist"

JOY SEILER HAD TO PULL OVER ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. SHE HAD WHAT SHE CALLS, AN EPISODE.

"I was diagnosed with Afib in 2012"

SHE SUFFERED FROM THE DISEASE FOR YEARS. HER IRREGULAR HEART BEAT LASTED FOR UP TO SIX HOURS EACH DAY.

JOY STOPPED DRIVING AND EVEN STOPPED GOING TO CHURCH.

BUT THE WORST PART. THE AFIB TOOK AWAY PRECIOUS MOMENTS WITH HER EIGHT GRANDCHILDREN.

"I would be afraid for them to come over and get in the pool with me because I didn't know if I was going to have an episode I was just afraid for them to be around me by myself"

SO, SHE OPTED FOR THE NEW SMARTTOUCH THERMOCOOL SMARTOUCH CATHETER.

A NEW TECHNOLOGY.

"This catheter that we're using is an improvement on the standard catheter where it actually allows us not only to make deeper burns but it actually has an extra sensor at the tip that for the first time allows us to know exactly how much pressure we're putting on the heart when we're doing the cauterization so by knowing exactly how much pressure you're putting at all times whether too much or too little it makes the procedure more thorough, safer and more effective"

JOY'S GRANDDAUGHTER MARIAH NOTICES THE DIFFERENCE.
