6:12 FORECAST ON THE 2'S-WX WALL


Full Forecast

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.

HOT, HUMID AND MAINLY DRY

Even though there is still plenty of humidity in the lower levels of the atmosphere, making it feel hotter than the temperatures actually are, the mid and upper levels of our atmosphere are relatively drier. That relatively drier air will greatly limit our rain chances today and the next couple of days. Usually we are tracking lots of afternoon storm activity this time of year, so this is not your typical Southwest Florida weather.

Winds will be coming in from the south-southwest and could give us just a very stray shower near the coast this morning, especially on the southern end of the area. Then in the afternoon, there will be just a few isolated storms. Those storms will be aimed toward the inland areas. That pattern will continue for tomorrow, too.

With less rain on the radar, temperatures should again be able to soar this afternoon reaching to 94 for the official high at Page Field in Fort Myers. Beaches will be just a couple of degrees cooler and inland areas a degree or 2 hotter. We will keep highs in the lower 90s through the week and rain chances will start to increase later in the week.

TROPICAL UPDATE

No tropical cyclones are active or expected to develop in the next 48 hours in the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico or Caribbean Sea.

However, a tropical wave just off the coast of Africa will be monitored closely this week for some possible development. Forecast models show this disturbance moving due westward across the Atlantic this week.

The National Hurricane Center has given this area a 30% chance of development in the next five days. As always, we will be tracking it and will keep you updated on-air and online. Return to index of stories...

TEENAGE DRIVERS INSURANCE-trxPLASMA


PARENTS OF TEENAGE DRIVES KNOW, THERE IS NOTHING CHEAP ABOUT INSURING THEM.

BUT THERE ARE SOME WAYS TO TRIM THE BILLS.

DETAILS FROM NBC'S CHRIS CLACKUM. Return to index of stories...


TEENAGE DRIVERS INSURANCE-PKG


LAST MONTH, THE INSURANCE INSTITUTE FOR HIGHWAY SAFETY.SHOWED THAT. TEENAGE DRIVERS.

.ALREADY SOME OF THE MOST UN-SAFE DRIVERS ON THE ROAD.

"They actually get into crashes three times more often than older drivers"

.ARE ALSO DRIVING SOME OF THE MOST UN-SAFE CARS.

SO, PARENTS ARE NOW BEING URGED TO SPEND MORE.

"To think about the high crash risk of teens. and think about spending a little more money when they purchase a vehicle"

NATURALLY, THOUGH, EXPECT THAT MORE EXPENSIVE VEHICLE. TO BE MORE EXPENSIVE TO INSURE.

UNLESS. YOUR TEENAGE DRIVER, FOR EXAMPLE. GETS GOOD GRADES.

"So high school students or even college students, sometimes even graduates students, up to about the age of 25, 26, can qualify for a good student discount if they're getting about a B average or better"

LAURA ADAMS AT INSURANCEQUOTES-DOT-COM SAYS OTHER WAYS TO REDUCE PREMIUMS.IS TO HAVE YOUR TEEN TAKE DRIVER SAFETY COURSES.

.OR SIGN UP FOR A PAY-AS-YOU-DRIVE PROGRAM.

"These are special programs that set your rate based on how you drive-not so much on age, gender, or the kind of more old school demographics"

SHE ALSO POINTS OUT. THAT EVEN THOUGH A SAFER CAR MAY BE MORE EXPENSIVE. INSURANCE COMPANIES OFFER DISCOUNTS FOR THOSE WITH MORE SAFETY FEATURES.

.EVEN WHEN A TEENAGER'S BEHIND THE WHEEL.

6:30 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.

HOT, HUMID AND MAINLY DRY

Even though there is still plenty of humidity in the lower levels of the atmosphere, making it feel hotter than the temperatures actually are, the mid and upper levels of our atmosphere are relatively drier. That relatively drier air will greatly limit our rain chances today and the next couple of days. Usually we are tracking lots of afternoon storm activity this time of year, so this is not your typical Southwest Florida weather.

Winds will be coming in from the south-southwest and could give us just a very stray shower near the coast this morning, especially on the southern end of the area. Then in the afternoon, there will be just a few isolated storms. Those storms will be aimed toward the inland areas. That pattern will continue for tomorrow, too.

With less rain on the radar, temperatures should again be able to soar this afternoon reaching to 94 for the official high at Page Field in Fort Myers. Beaches will be just a couple of degrees cooler and inland areas a degree or 2 hotter. We will keep highs in the lower 90s through the week and rain chances will start to increase later in the week.

TROPICAL UPDATE

No tropical cyclones are active or expected to develop in the next 48 hours in the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico or Caribbean Sea.

However, a tropical wave just off the coast of Africa will be monitored closely this week for some possible development. Forecast models show this disturbance moving due westward across the Atlantic this week.

The National Hurricane Center has given this area a 30% chance of development in the next five days. As always, we will be tracking it and will keep you updated on-air and online. Return to index of stories...
