TRACKING A BRIEF COOL-DOWN

The rain from yesterday and last night continues to move away from the area as a cold front sweeps through south Florida tonight. Forecast computer models indicate that this frontal passage could bring us some chilly weather tonight and tomorrow. Winds will pick up as well and a Small Craft Advisory is posted for the Gulf of Mexico waters through noon tomorrow. Temperatures tonight will likely fall below 50 degrees north of the Caloosahatchee River and inland counties. Along and near the coast the lows tomorrow morning will be in the lower 50's. The average low temperature for this time of year is 61 degrees, so Wednesday morning is looking chilly by March standards.

The forecast tomorrow calls for lots of sunshine and highs in the mid 70's. also below average for March. By Thursday we will warm back to the 80's as a few clouds begin to return overhead.

Rain showers are possible late Friday and on Saturday and Sunday this coming weekend. It shouldn't be a complete rain-out this weekend; however, the chance for showers is about 50% both days. Return to index of stories...

DELANEY CLEMENTS IS ONLY 11 YEARS OLD BUT THE BUBBLY LITTLE GIRL HAS ALREADY FACED A LIFETIME OF HARDSHIPS.

"I have cancer called called neuroblastoma and I've been getting a treatment called chemotherapy and it makes my hair fall out."

DELANEY HAS RECEIVED A LOT OF SUPPORT FROM THE COMMUNITY AROUND HER AND RECENTLY, KAMRYN RENFRO SHAVED HER HEAD TO SHOW SUPPORT.

"She's my best friend and yeah. Yeah."

"It made me feel very special and that I'm not alone."

"For a little girl to be really brave and want to shave her head in support of her friend, I thought it was a huge statement and it builds character."

THE GOOD DEED DIDN'T GO UNNOTICED - AND IT GOT SOME UNEXPECTED RESULTS.

"They won't let me go back to school because of my shaved head."

KAMRYN IS A STUDENT A CAPROCK ACADEMY, A CHARTER SCHOOL IN GRAND JUNCTION.

ACCORDING TO A STATEMENT MADE BY THE SCHOOL'S BOARD OF DIRECTORS, THE SCHOOL HAS A DETAILED DRESS CODE AND SHAVED HEADS ARE NOT ALLOWED.

FACED WITH THIS DILEMMA, THE GIRLS' MOMS TOOK TO SOCIAL MEDIA - AND THEY RECEIVED A LOT OF FEEDBACK FROM PARENTS LIKE CORRINA SHIRLEY.

"She didn't shave her head to be a part of a gang or to be a rebel, she shaved her head to show her friend that she wasn't alone."

SHIRLEY HAS TWO DAUGHTERS OF HER OWN - AND SHE SAYS WHILE SHE RESPECTS THE DECISION, SHE STRONGLY DISAGREES WITH IT.

"I think there's times that rules are extremely important and I think there's times that compassion is far more important than any rulebook."

AND EVEN WITH THE UPROAR IT'S CAUSED, KAMRYN SAYS SHE DOESN'T REGRET HER DECISION.

"Yeah it felt like the right thing to do." Return to index of stories...
