FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


Early this morning, a couple of downpours have already developed and worked their way to our coastline from the Gulf of Mexico. Through the morning to midday time frame, we'll see some scattered downpours washing ashore and fading once they come ashore. This is happening as the onshore wind flow continues to dominate our weather pattern. By this afternoon, there will still be a few storms, but they will be mainly inland. Even as most of the activity heads inland this afternoon, a stray shower can still wash ashore at any time.

For Friday and into the weekend, rain chances will be limited. With winds staying onshore, we will still be in the pattern of the chance for a morning shower to come in from the Gulf of Mexico and the isolated afternoon activity will be aimed toward the inland areas.

Highs today and through the next few days will be near 90 degrees at the coastline to the mid 90s in the inland areas. Lows will stay in the mid and upper 70s.

Tropical Update

Other than a couple tropical wave in the eastern Atlantic, the tropics continue to stay quiet. Tropical activity is not expected for the next few days, but we're getting close to the time of year when we normally see an increase in tropical development. Keep monitoring nbc-2.com for future updates on the tropics. Return to index of stories...

HIGH TECH FOOTBALL-PLASMA DISSOLVE VO


IN TODAY'S HEALTHCAST. A TENNESSEE FOOTBALL TEAM IS USING NEW TECHNOLOGY TO HELP PROTECT PLAYERS.

SPECIAL SENSORS IN A HELMET. TRACK SIGNIFICANT BLOWS TO THE HEAD.

HEIDI WIGDAHL HAS MORE ON HOW IT'S KEEPING THE TEAM A STEP AHEAD. Return to index of stories...


HIGH TECH FOOTBALL-PKG


QUARTERBACK SAMUEL MCCLOUD IS GEARING UP FOR HIS SENIOR YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL.

"My freshman year I did experience a concussion in practice."

THAT GEAR INCLUDES A NEW HIGH TECH HELMET THAT TRACKS BLOWS TO THE HEAD.

"When there's a significant impact to the helmet, it will vibrate. The trainer at that point will be able to get the kid out and evaluate him."

RIDDELL TOOK ON THEIR VERSION OF THE TECHNOLOGY, CALLED "INSITE." SENSORS INSIDE THE HELMET ARE LINKED TO A HANDHELD MONITOR. THAT MONITOR RECORDS SIGNIFICANT IMPACTS TO THE HEAD, SHOWING WHICH PLAYER WAS INVOLVED, WHERE ON THE HEAD, AND THE SPEED OF COLLISION.

"One of the kids who was wearing it got hit in the head. The sensor went off on the sidelines that our trainer was holding. Our trainer was then able to pull the kid from the scrimmage, quickly evaluate him and get him back out."

AN ATHLETIC TRAINER KEEPS TRACK OF COLLISIONS FROM THE SIDELINES.

"I'm excited about it because it'll tell all the coaches whenever I have an impact to the head that could potentially hurt me and I don't know about. So I feel a little bit more protected."

MCCLOUD WILL BE WEARING ONE OF THE SIX SENSORED HELMETS FOR THE SEASON, AND HELPING KEEP HIS PARENTS AT EASE.

"I really think it's a good thing for high school sports to really give the data to back up what doctors are telling head coaches."

IT'S A FRESH NEW SEASON FOR GREENBACK AND THEY ALSO HOPE IT WILL BE THEIR SAFEST SEASON YET. Return to index of stories...

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-CLIP


Return to index of stories...

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


Early this morning, a couple of downpours have already developed and worked their way to our coastline from the Gulf of Mexico. Through the morning to midday time frame, we'll see some scattered downpours washing ashore and fading once they come ashore. This is happening as the onshore wind flow continues to dominate our weather pattern. By this afternoon, there will still be a few storms, but they will be mainly inland. Even as most of the activity heads inland this afternoon, a stray shower can still wash ashore at any time.

For Friday and into the weekend, rain chances will be limited. With winds staying onshore, we will still be in the pattern of the chance for a morning shower to come in from the Gulf of Mexico and the isolated afternoon activity will be aimed toward the inland areas.

Highs today and through the next few days will be near 90 degrees at the coastline to the mid 90s in the inland areas. Lows will stay in the mid and upper 70s.

Tropical Update

Other than a couple tropical wave in the eastern Atlantic, the tropics continue to stay quiet. Tropical activity is not expected for the next few days, but we're getting close to the time of year when we normally see an increase in tropical development. Keep monitoring nbc-2.com for future updates on the tropics. Return to index of stories...

ULTRA HD TELEVISION-TRX-PKG


WHETHER IT'S CALLED ULTRA HD.

OR 4K.THEY'RE BOTH THE SAME THING-----

POTENTIALLY, THE NEXT BIG TREND IN TELEVISION.

SETS WITH NEARLY 4 TIMES THE SCREEN RESOLUTION.OR SHARPNESS.OF CURRENT HD TELEVISIONS.

"Ultra HD was really a term created by the industry to deal with the fact that 4K was technically misleading - 4000 lines was really 3820"

JIM WILLIAMSON OPERATES A SHOWROOM FOR HIGH-END ELECTRONICS AND HAS SEEN CUSTOMERS STUNNED BY THIS HIGHER DEFINITION TV.

"Most of the customers come in here and stand in front of this TV and go "oh my god!" so there is that level of visual difference."

CONSUMER REPORTS TESTED VARIOUS U-H-D TVS…

INCLUDING THE NEW CURVED SAMSUNG 65-INCH, WHICH WAS ONE OF THEIR TOP PICKS.

BUT, ELECTRONICS EDITOR JIM WILLCOX SAYS CONTENT MAKERS NEED TO CATCH UP TO THE NEW TECHNOLOGY.

"Sony and Samsung both offer hard drives where you can get pre loaded movies on them.

Netflix is starting to stream some 4k but there's really not a lot of 4k content"

BUT UNLIKE THE RECENT TRANSITION FROM STANDARD TO HIGH DEFINITION.

"Regular TV content looks even better on these ultra hi def sets"

THAT ADDED DETAIL THOUGH… COMES WITH A HEFTY PRICETAG

nats "The TV behind me is about 3,500 dollars"

PRICES START AROUND 15-HUNDRED AND RANGE UP TO *TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS.FOR NOW.

"If you can even wait a couple of months we're expecting prices to drop in the late fall and around Christmas buying season"

CONSUMER REPORTS SAYS THAT DROP MAY BE AS MUCH AS 30 PERCENT.

A FIGURE THAT COULD SHARPEN ULTRA HD'S APPEAL.
