AMERICAS MONEY AT 6AM-PKG


GOOD MORNING. TOPPING "AMERICA'S MONEY". REGULATING E-CIGARETTES.

THE GOVERNMENT WANTS TO BAN SALES TO MINORS AND REQUIRE HEALTH WARNINGS ON

PACKAGES OF THESE NICOTINE PRODUCTS. HOWEVER, THE PROPOSED RULES DO NOT GO

AS FAR AS SOME HEALTH ADVOCATES WANT.

APPLE HAD BETTER-THAN-EXPECTED REVENUE FOR THE LAST QUARTER. AND YESTERDAY

ANNOUNCED A SEVEN- FOR- ONE STOCK SPLIT IN JUNE.

SOME ANALYSTS SAY THAT COULD BRING SHARE PRICES LOW ENOUGH TO EARN APPLE A

PLACE IN THE DOW JONES INDUSTRIAL AVERAGE.

IF YOU CAN'T FIND THE CAR YOU WANT IN THE DEALER'S SHOWROOM, BLAME THE

RAILROADS. MANY NEW VEHICLES ARE PARKED OUTSIDE THE FACTORIES. THIS WINTER'S

BAD WEATHER CAUSED LINGERING SHIPPING DELAYS. MORE AUTO PRODUCTION OUTSIDE

THE MIDWEST IS ALSO CREATING PROBLEMS.

AND STARBUCKS NEXT MONTH WILL OFFER THE "CHUNKY COOKIE FRAPPUCCINO". WHICH

CONTAINS AN ENTIRE COOKIE. IT COMES WITH A WIDER STRAW -- TO SLURP UP THE

CRUMBLED COOKIE. BUT ONLY IN JAPAN. THERE ARE NO PLANS TO OFFER IT IN THE

U-S.

THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE ABC7 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS TH

E FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

MAINLY SUNNY AND WARMER

The warm, sunny weather will continue today. We start with mild temperatures and some patchy fog this morning, but we will quickly start warming up and the fog will mix out once the sun comes up. Afternoon high temperatures are headed into the mid 80s with lower 80s expected on the beaches and upper 80s in those deep inland warm spots. Winds will be light and variable through the morning, turning onshore this afternoon at around 10 mph.

For tomorrow on through the weekend, mostly sunny skies will continue and temperatures will continue to climb just a bit each day. Humidity will also be on the rise through the weekend.

If you are waiting for our next rain chance to come our way, you'll have to wait until the middle of next week when a cold front approaches our area. Return to index of stories...
