WEATHER-WXWALL


RAIN CHANCES RETURN

Our stretch of great weather continued into Thursday, with a blend of sun & clouds and highs in the 80s. Expect a mild and humid evening, with temps only falling into the 70s. Patchy fog may once again develop overnight, with lows in the mid 60s

Changes are ahead as we enter Friday. A cool front will plow into North Florida. The front doesn't make it into our area, but it will transport more moisture into the region. The result will be a lot more cloud cover and scattered rain chances. The best chance for rain will be in the afternoon areas east of I-75. Highs on Friday will be in the low 80s.

The increased moisture stays in place for Saturday. We'll keep partly sunny skies to a blend of sun & clouds. Again, a few scattered showers will be possible inland. Highs on Saturday will climb into the mid 80s.

Sunday features more sunshine and lower rain chances. Expect partly cloudy conditions to close the weekend, with just an isolated rain chance. Highs will again be in the mid 80s.

Next week still looks fairly warm with a chance of showers. Monday and Tuesday are still expected to feature partly cloudy skies with isolated rain showers possible. Expect highs both days in the low 80s.

Rain chances will increase midweek as the frontal boundary finally begins to push into Southwest Florida. We'll close out next week with temps in the upper 70s to low 80s. Return to index of stories...

"monday, I called over to the school, fgcu, to try and find out if she was a registered student and I found out through my investigation she was not registered."

F-G-C-U TOLD US IN A STATEMENT --

NO ONE BY EVANA'S NAME HAD APPLIED, BEEN ACCEPTED, OR ENROLLED AT F-G-C-U.

WHICH DID NOT JIVE WITH WHAT SHE TOLD US WEDNESDAY.

"I understand you're a student."

"yes, I am."

"where do you go? FGCU, I'm doing online courses right now."

HMMM -- HER FACTS WERE DIFFERENT TODAY.

"I was doing online courses but with the financial things situation changed."

NOT A STUDENT.

WHEN BILL FIGURED OUT EVANA DIDN'T GO TO F-G-C-U --

HE CANCELLED THE CHECKS.
