We will find ourselves in a rather typical summertime pattern for the upcoming work week. Temperatures will be hot, yet seasonal for early July. Highs rather consistently are expected between 92 and 93 degrees.

With sea breeze interactions today, and for the next several days, you can expect scattered afternoon thunderstorms. Coverage from day to day will vary, yet the usual late afternoon and early evening time frame will be the most likely for that development. Today much of the activity will be from 3pm on through the evening and mainly aimed toward the inland areas.

TROPICAL UPDATE

Weather conditions look generally quiet regarding tropical cyclones across the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. No cyclones are active, and development of any storms is not anticipated in the next three to five days. Return to index of stories...

IT WAS THE SEX SCANDAL THAT ROCKED THE WHITE HOUSE *AND THE WORLD*. AND NOW-

20- YEARS LATER-- MONICA LEWINSKY SAYS THE ANGUISH IS STILL FRESHDESCRIBING

THE TERROR OF THE FBI-AMBUSHING HER AT A SHOPPING MALL-- ABOUT HER

RELATIONSHIP WITH PRESIDENT CLINTON

Nats

SOT MONICA/ i don't even know how accurately to describe the shock and the

trauma and the fear. They threatened me with 27 years in jail or i had to

co-operate. The third option, really, was i looked out the window and

thought 'I'll just jump.

IN HER FIRST TELEVISION INTERVIEW IN 10 YEARS -- THE FORMER WHITE HOUSE

INTERN, NOW 40, TALKED CANDIDLY ON NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC'S MINISERIES"THE '90S

: THE LAST GREAT DECADE?"

SOT MONICA/ to be in the vortex of this media maelstrom was quite alarming

and frightening -- and confusing. I think a lot too had to do with the fact

that I was a woman

OF COURSE-PRESIDENT CLINTON-WAS ALSO GRILLED ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP

SOT JAMES FISHER the pivotal point was when I asked the president about

gifts he had given to Monica Lewinsky. Because my questions were specific he

knew at that point that there had been a breech, in their covenant of

secrecy. And at that point his demeanor changed. He became troubled, his

face became flushed and his hands began to shake.

SOT KEN GORMLEY you could see in his face a light went off and he knew there

was a rat in the woodpile, someone had given them, funneled them

information

LEWINSKY SAID SHE HAD WAITED FOR A GESTUREFROM THE PRESIDENTBUT IT NEVER

CAME.

SOT MONICA/ I had thought there should be some sort of apology

to my parents. I was a young girl when I started as an intern He and I had both made mistakes but he really and truly was more

the adult in the situation.

OSCAR PISTORIUS TRIAL RESUMES-TC MON VO


WE BEGIN WITH AN ASTONISHING NEW DEVELOPMENT IN THE OSCAR PISTORIUS MURDER TRIAL --

A PRIVATE VIDEO SHOWING PISTORIUS REENACTING THE NIGHT HIS MODEL GIRLFRIEND WAS KILLED.

IT WAS PREPARED FOR THE DEFENSE, AND NEVER MEANT TO BE

RELEASED.

IT'S COMPLICATING AN ALREADY DIFFICULT CASE FOR PISTORIUS.

ABC'S LAMA HASAN HAS THE LATEST. Return to index of stories...


OSCAR PISTORIUS TRIAL RESUMES-PKG


THIS MORNING - PISTORIUS'S TEAM IS CONDEMNING THE AIRING OF FOOTAGE OF THE

PARALYMPIAN REENACTING THE NIGHT HE SHOT DEAD HIS GIRLFRIEND REEVA STEENKAMP

AS A "STAGGERING BREACH OF TRUST." THE VIDEO AIRED SUNDAY ON AUSTRLIAN TV

CHANNEL 7.

THE FOOTAGE-WHICH PISTORIUS'S ATTORNEY SAYS THE CHANNEL PAID FOR-SHOWS THE

OLYMPIAN RUNNING AWKWARDLY WITHOUT HIS PROSTHETIC LEGS, OUTSTRETCHING HIS

RIGHT ARM -AS IF CLUTCHING A GUN. HERE HE IS SLUMPED OVER IN A BATHROOM-

APPARENTLY DEMONSTRATING THE POSITION IN WHICH STEENKAMP'S BODY WAS FOUNDAND

THEN, STRUGGLING ON THE GROUND TO CARRY A MOTIONLESS WOMAN.

GFX

HIS DEFENSE TEAM SAYS IT HIRED A "US-based company" TO SHOOT THE FOOTAGE

BEFORE THE TRIAL "for preparation only", BUT IT WAS "obtained illegally" and

leaked with "No permission". IT WAS NEVER SUPPOSED TO AIR DURING THE TRIAL

.

IN A CASE THAT'S WEIGHED SO HEAVILY ON PISTORIUS' MOVEMENT

04:49:49 -

NEL

"He could walk out the door of the bedroom?"

Derman:

"He could walk like he could walkat his pace, with his limitations, yes."

AND THE DEFENCE USING A SPORTS DOCTOR TO ARGUE THE BLADE RUNNER IS

VULNERABLE ON HIS STUMPS

SOT DR. Derman - HASAN PISTORIUS JULY 3 - 00:34

"Mr. Pistorius' significant disability when he is left without the benefit

of these prophesies does not allow him sufficient mobility or balance to

protect himself and take flight."

THE QUESTION THIS MORNING IS WHETHER THE PROSECUTION WILL TRY TO USE THIS

VIDEO AGAINST PISTORIUS.

MEANWHILE - NEW DETAILS FROM THE PYSCHOLOGY REPORT REQUESTED BY THE

PROSECUTION DESCRIBE OSCAR PISTORIUS AS A BROKEN AND LONELY MAN.

IN THE REPORT - A CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST SAYING PISTORIUS "indicatedthat

things would be easier if he was dead," EXPLAINING THE ONLY REASON HE HASN'T

TAKEN HIS OWN LIFE IS BECAUSE - "his family have been put through enough" Return to index of stories...

FORECAST-WX WALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE ABC7 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

HOT AND HUMID WITH AFTERNOON STORMS

We will find ourselves in a rather typical summertime pattern for the upcoming work week. Temperatures will be hot, yet seasonal for early July. Highs rather consistently are expected between 92 and 93 degrees.

With sea breeze interactions today, and for the next several days, you can expect scattered afternoon thunderstorms. Coverage from day to day will vary, yet the usual late afternoon and early evening time frame will be the most likely for that development. Today much of the activity will be from 3pm on through the evening and mainly aimed toward the inland areas.

TROPICAL UPDATE

Weather conditions look generally quiet regarding tropical cyclones across the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. No cyclones are active, and development of any storms is not anticipated in the next three to five days. Return to index of stories...

shark just vibrating. /

03:17 I was staring at that shark, eyeball to eyeball, literally like right

here. It's the most frightening thing I have ever, anyone could ever

experience

05:23 N: What does go through your mind 05:30 S: I didn't want to die. I was

scared. I was panicked. BREAKS DOWN. N: Don't worry, it's over. WIFE"S HAND

CASEY FENWICK WAS SURFING JUST A FEW FEET FROM THE ATTACK.
