FORECAST-WXWALL


HEAT AND HUMIDITY SLOWLY RETURNING

It was another great day across Southwest Florida, with highs in the low to mid 80s. Expect another quiet evening, with temps falling into the 70s. Fog will likely again develop overnight, with lows in the mid 60s.

The great weather continues into Friday. We'll again see plenty of sun with an afternoon sea breeze developing. Highs on Friday will be a touch warmer, with temps in the mid 80s area wide.

The heat and humidity will return to the region just in time for the weekend. Mostly sunny skies will be the norm on Saturday, with highs pushing into the upper 80s.

A few more clouds will develop on Sunday, with humid highs in the upper 80s. A few isolated showers will also be possible inland, but most areas will likely stay dry.

Next week, more heat and humidity push into the area. Highs to start next week will be in the upper 80s, with a daily chance of an isolated PM shower in inland areas.

Rain chances will increase some on Wednesday, with even better chance for rain on Thursday as our next storm system approaches the area. Highs to close next week look to be in the mid 80s. Return to index of stories...

GRADERS ON THE PLAYGROUND -

SOT - JOHN GATES - Director of School Safety and Security, Greeley Evans

THE NEXT DAY OFFICIALS SAY A SECOND BOY BROUGHT IN MARIJUANA CANDY. A SO-

CALLED "EDIBLE" MADE WITH HIGHLY CONCENTRATED MARIJUANA. DANGEROUS IN

LARGE DOSES. BOTH BOYS APPARENTLY STOLE THE MARIJUANA FROM THEIR

GRANDPARENTS' STASH.

ABC 7 SMART SHOPPER CHLOE MORRONI IS CRACKING THE PRICE TAG CODES TONIGHT. Return to index of stories...


DECODING PRICE TAGS-PKG


WE ALL LOVE A GOOD DEAL, BUT WHEN IS A SALE PRICE REALLY A STEAL? OR A CLEARANCE TAG SO LOW IT CAN'T GET ANY CHEAPER?

21:06:42 -:45

"Of course you want to get the best price and save money."

CONSUMER EXPERTS FROM RATHER BE SHOPPING DOT COM, SAY STORES LIKE SAM'S CLUB AND OFFICE DEPOT, OFTEN ENCODE SALE INFORMATION IN THE LAST TWO DIGITS OF AN ITEM'S PRICE.

IT'S TYPICALLY DONE SO EMPLOYEES KNOW WHERE TO STOCK CERTAIN PRODUCTS…

21;14:57 -:59

"I didn't know they had a hidden code in there."

EXPERTS SAY AT SEARS, A PRICE ENDING WITH 97 CENTS MEANS IT'S A DISCOUNTINUED ITEM, 88 CENTS IS A FINAL MARKDOWN.

AT THE HOME DEPOT, LOOK FOR PRICES ENDING WITH 06, THAT WOULD BE THE LOWEST MARKDOWN THEY'RE GONNA GIVE.

AT OLD NAVY, PRICES ENDING IN 47, 49, 97 OR 99 CENTS MEAN IT'S A DISCONTINUED OR CLEARANCE ITEM.

21:01:04 -:07

"I think that's great, I'm a great shopper and I didn't even know it.

STAND UP

21:16:37 - CHLOE

Consumer experts strongly advise target shoppers to look at the upper right hand corner of a clearance tag. You're looking for this little number."

IT WILL BE 15, 30, 50, 70 OR 90 AND THAT'S THE ACTUAL PERCENTAGE OFF THE ORIGINAL PRICE, SO THE HIGHER THE NUMBER THE BETTER.

21:15:05 -:12

"I'll be looking at that corner you just showed me to see how much a percentage off they're giving me off."

21:06:02 -:04

"It's something everybody needs to learn."

1:53 -:55

"Just knowing will save you a lot of money."

REMEMBER YOU STILL HAVE TO DECIDE WHEN TO ACT, DO YOU TAKE IT AT 50 PERCENT OFF OR WAIT UNTIL IT GOES UP TO 70?

BUT CRACKING THE CODES CAN CERTAINLY HELP MAKE THAT CHOICE A LITTLE EASIER.
