ANOTHER SUNNY, WARM DAY

Our Thursday morning is off to a mild start and temperatures will be climbing through the day. Afternoon highs will be near 80 at the beaches to the mid 80s inland. We'll see lots of sunshine today with just a few fair weather clouds. Winds will be from the southeast around 10-15 mph with gusts near 20 mph with the sea breeze coming in to the beaches during the afternoon hours.

For Friday, more cloud cover will arrive as a front pushes its way toward the area. We could even see a couple of showers during the afternoon hours, but the best chance for that shower activity will be in the inland areas. We'll be a couple of degrees cooler on Friday due to the cloud cover.

That front will likely stall just to our north. Then through the weekend it will stay just north of us, but will wobble north and south a bit. Since it now looks like that front will stay north of us, our weekend weather pans out ok. We'll have highs in the mid 80s and lows in the mid and upper 60s. We'll see partly to mostly sunny skies with only a stray shower. It now looks like our better rain chance waits until the middle of next week. Return to index of stories...

SAM IN STUDIO: BEST PRICES-LIVE VO LIVE


GOOD MORNING GUYS---- NEARLY EVERYONE USES MILK FOR ONE REASON OR ANOTHER--- AND THAT IS WHAT'S BEHIND THE RISE IN PRICES. COMES DOWN TO SUPPLY AND DEMAND.

CHINA IS IMPORTING MORE MILK THAN EVER BEFORE. AMERICAS BUTTER EXPORTS ARE UP 78 PERCENT. THE MORE WE EXPORT LESS WE HAVE. THE HIGHER THE PRICE.

THE MOST SURPRISING REASON--- THIS RIGHT HERE. GREEK YOGURT. AMERICANS ARE EATING MORE OF IT THAN EVER BEFORE. IT TAKES 4 TIMES THE AMOUNT OF MILK TO PRODUCE THIS LITTLE CONTAINER THAN OTHER YOGURT.

MILK RIGHT NOW AT PUBLIX WILL SET YOU BACK. XYZ BUT MANAGEMENT HERE SAYS THATS AS LOW AS IT WILL BE FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE. IT'S ONLY GOING UP!

IVE DONE SOME RESEARCH AND THERE ARE SEVERAL REASONS WHY. THEY MAY SURPRISE YOU.

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO BUY A GALLON A DAY..YOUR MILK BILL THIS YEAR WILL RUN ABOUT 1700 DOLLARS.

530AM~STORMWARN FORECAST-WX CTR TO WX WALL


ANOTHER SUNNY, WARM DAY

Our Thursday morning is off to a mild start and temperatures will be climbing through the day. Afternoon highs will be near 80 at the beaches to the mid 80s inland. We'll see lots of sunshine today with just a few fair weather clouds. Winds will be from the southeast around 10-15 mph with gusts near 20 mph with the sea breeze coming in to the beaches during the afternoon hours.

For Friday, more cloud cover will arrive as a front pushes its way toward the area. We could even see a couple of showers during the afternoon hours, but the best chance for that shower activity will be in the inland areas. We'll be a couple of degrees cooler on Friday due to the cloud cover.

That front will likely stall just to our north. Then through the weekend it will stay just north of us, but will wobble north and south a bit. Since it now looks like that front will stay north of us, our weekend weather pans out ok. We'll have highs in the mid 80s and lows in the mid and upper 60s. We'll see partly to mostly sunny skies with only a stray shower. It now looks like our better rain chance waits until the middle of next week. Return to index of stories...
