WEATHER-WXWALL


After Southwest Florida enjoyed temperatures in the low 80s again this afternoon, the weather pattern will allow us to squeeze out one more nice day before a cool front comes down the peninsula with clouds, rain and cooler temperatures for the end of the work week.

Overnight, expect some patchy fog to develop late with lows in the low 60s. Wednesday will again be partly sunny and mild with highs in the low 80s. The beaches should peak just shy of 80º.

The cool front arrives late tomorrow night with showers beginning after midnight and lasting through the early part of Thursday. Clouds linger all day, which will hold highs in the low-mid 70s.

By Friday, the cool front pushes away, allowing the sun to return on Friday afternoon with highs in the mid 70s.

This weekend is looking great with highs back into the low 80s. Return to index of stories...

NEW MOTHER - LINDSAY JAYNES -- COULDN'T FIND A POLICY ABOUT BREASTFEEDING ON BOARD DELTA FLIGHTS.

SOT Lindsay Jaynes:

"All I really wanted was a written statement, by them, to show any

of the flight attendants, or anyone on the plane, just in case there was an

issue."

SHE TWEETED DELTA'S CUSTOMER SERVICE ACCOUNT BREASTFEEDING

A DELTA REPRESENTATIVE TWEETED BACK THAT SHOULD COULD BREASTFEED WITH A COVERUP.

SOMETHING HER SON REFUSES.

ANOTHER NO-GO FOR HER FICKLE BABY BOY.

SOT Lindsay Jaynes: "I've tried since day one, to use a cover with him, and to use a bottle, and he refuses to feed
