530AM~STORMWARN FORECAST-WX CTR TO WX WALL


The weather is on repeat for the next several days. The summer-like pattern continues again this Thursday afternoon. Expect another hot and humid afternoon with highs in the low 90s but "feeling like" near triple digits.

During the afternoon, after mid-day primarily, pop up showers and storms will fill the sky in some places. Just like Wednesday, some storms will have potential for heavy downpours and deadly lightning.

Overnight into Friday morning will be very muggy. Lows bottom out in the low 70s, which is near normal for this time in July. Friday morning chances for rain will be isolated and in the coastal waters. However, some will try and advance towards inland areas. Any that do quickly fizzle out, therefore not anticipating a tricky Friday morning commute.

Weekend forecast looks pretty typical. Both Saturday & Sunday will be hot with highs in the low 90s. Best chance for rain will during the afternoon hours and along the I-75 corridor.

The tropics remain quiet and no storms are expected to develop for the next 5 to 7 days. Return to index of stories...

FL IMMIGRATION REFORM-VIDBOX (3)-ONCAM


A BI-PARTISAN GROUP OF BUSINESS, FAITH AND UNIVERSITY LEADERS IS CALLING ON CONGRESS TO PASS AN IMMIGRATION REFORM PLAN.

PEOPLE RALLIED IN TALLAHASSEE WEDNESDAY.

THEY REMAIN DIVIDED OVER THREE POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS--

DEPORTING ALL UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS--

GRANTING *U-S* CITIZENSHIP TO THOSE HERE ILLEGALLY--

OR ALLOWING LEGAL STATUS WITHOUT CITIZENSHIP.

A NEW POLL SHOWS 50 PERCENT OF AMERICANS THINK AN IMMIGRATION OVERHAUL NEEDS TO HAPPEN THIS YEAR.

Vo/Sot: IMMIGRATION REFORM SOUGHT: Groups including the Florida Chamber of Commerce and the Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops are expected to take part in a news conference calling for immigration reform.

A bipartisan coalition of Florida big business groups, faith and university leaders joined together Wednesday, calling on Congress to pass an immigration reform plan. Events like the one in Tallahassee were held across the country, with participants saying reform is good for business as well as compassionate toward those who entered America looking for a better life. The group used the news conference to release a new poll showing 85 percent of respondents think the immigration system in the United States needs fixing. However the survey also shows people are almost evenly divided on what the solution should be, between deporting all undocumented immigrants, granting US citizenship to those here illegally or allowing legal status without citizenship. University of Miami Professor Rudy Fernandez says Congress needs to listen to voters, and handle the issue one way or another.

Sot: Rudy Fernandez, Professor, University of Miami

"There is a majority of voters nationally, as indicated by the poll, who support immigration reform. We will win this debate and we will see Congressional action when that majority lets its voice be heard loudly in Washington DC, and calls their members of Congress and demands action."

During the 2014 legislative session, the Republican-dominated Florida Legislature passed a bill granting in-state tuition to some undocumented immigrants. GOP Governor Rick Scott signed the bill into law. Pointing to that, the coalition says they are confident broader reform can happen in Congress, as immigration is not a partisan issue. Nearly 50 percent of those polled think an immigration overhaul needs to happen this year.

*** Bonus Bite ***

Sot: Rudy Fernandez, Professor, University of Miami

"If we don't deal with this effectively and increase the number of legal visas, so there are workers who can come here and take a temporary job, well guess what? They'll continue to come here illegally and 11 million will turn into 20 million if we don't act." Return to index of stories...

STORMWARN FORECAST-WX WALL


The weather is on repeat for the next several days. The summer-like pattern continues again this Thursday afternoon. Expect another hot and humid afternoon with highs in the low 90s but "feeling like" near triple digits.

During the afternoon, after mid-day primarily, pop up showers and storms will fill the sky in some places. Just like Wednesday, some storms will have potential for heavy downpours and deadly lightning.

Overnight into Friday morning will be very muggy. Lows bottom out in the low 70s, which is near normal for this time in July. Friday morning chances for rain will be isolated and in the coastal waters. However, some will try and advance towards inland areas. Any that do quickly fizzle out, therefore not anticipating a tricky Friday morning commute.

Weekend forecast looks pretty typical. Both Saturday & Sunday will be hot with highs in the low 90s. Best chance for rain will during the afternoon hours and along the I-75 corridor.
