TRACKING ARTHUR-WX WALL


SHOWERS & STORMS POSSIBLE AS ARTHUR EXITS

It was another hot & humid across Southwest Florida, with highs again in the low to mid 90s. Scattered storms again developed mainly inland and more activity may try to push in from the Gulf later this evening. Temps will fall into the 80s. Overnight lows will fall into the mid and upper 70s.

Showers and storms will also be possible Thursday as Tropical Storm Arthur begins to push away from Florida. The best chance for rain will likely be in the morning hours in coastal areas, with scattered storms possible inland during the afternoon. Highs on Thursday will be in the low 90s.

July 4th is still looking fairly good, with plenty of sunshine expected. Some dry air will also push in, reducing the threat for showers and storms in the area. Some isolated activity is still expected though with temps in the 90s.

More typical Southwest Florida weather begins to return for the weekend. Expect plenty of morning sun and scattered PM storms possible in the afternoon and early evening. Temps both weekend days will be in the low 90s.

The scattered storm chance will linger into next week.

TROPICAL STORM ARTHUR

Arthur remains a healthy tropical storm east of Cape Canaveral. Maximum sustained winds are 60 mph and Arthur is beginning to move north towards the Carolinas.

The Tropical Storm Watch has been cancelled for the East Coast of Florida, but new Tropical Storm Warnings are up for much of coastal North Carolina.

Arthur is expected to strengthen into a hurricane and will like graze the central coast of North Carolina before moving toward the Cape Cod area of New England. Return to index of stories...

CO SLEEPING WITH BABY-VO-WIPE


IT'S THE SECOND LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH FOR FLORIDA CHILDREN YOUNGER THAN FOUR --

CO-SLEEPING.

SLEEPING WITH YOUR CHILD.

IT RIVALS DROWNING IN THE STATE.

TONIGHT - CHILD ADVOCATES NATIONWIDE ARE TRYING TO WARN PARENTS OF THE DANGERS.

IN FACT, FLORIDA JUST LAUNCHED A CAMPAIGN TO MAKE THE REPORTING OF CHILD DEATHS MORE TRANSPARENT.

DOCTORS SAY MANY PARENTS FEEL OBLIGATED TO PUT THEIR INFANTS OR BABIES IN BED WITH THEM TO FORM A BOND.

THEY SAY THE BEST OPTION IS TO KEEP A BASONETTE OR A CRIB NEXT TO THE BED.

OTHERS SAY PARENTS CAN CO-SLEEP -- THEY JUST NEED TO KNOW THE SAFEST WAY. Return to index of stories...


CO SLEEPING WITH BABY-SOT-OC


Allison Coleman/ Parenting Coach - "There will always be parents who are bonded to their baby in a way that they want their baby there with them. They need to say if you feel drawn to sleeping with your baby, which is not for every family, this is how to do it safely."

EXPERTS IN FLORIDA SUGGEST PARENTS FOLLOW THE ABC'S OF SLEEPING FOR BABIES.

ALONE. ON THEIR BACKS AND IN A CRIB.

AGAIN -- THEY SAY CO-SLEEPING DOES NOT CREATE A BOND. YOU CAN ROLL OVER AND SMOTHER THE INFANT. OR IT COULD BE KILLED BY OTHER THINGS IN YOUR BED.

THEY SAY PUT YOUR BABY IN A PORTABLE CRIB WITHOUT PILLOWS, COMFORTERS OR STUFFED ANIMALS. Return to index of stories...
