FORECAST-WXWALL


STORM CHANCES FOR THE WEEKEND

Scattered showers and storms again developed on Friday, but the coverage was lower courtesy of some Saharan dust working through the area. What storms are left will diminish this evening, as temps fall into the 70s. Expect a quiet overnight, with lows in the mid 70s.

Rain and storm chances continue heading into the weekend. We'll see plenty of morning sunshine across the area, with scattered showers and storms developing in the PM hours.

The Saharan dust will be making its exit on Saturday, so coverage of storms may again be lower than usual. Highs on Saturday will be in the low 90s.

The threat for storms will continue into Sunday. Once again, expect a dry morning with partly cloudy skies and showers and storms popping up in the PM hours. Highs on Sunday will be in the low 90s.

The typical July weather pattern looks to continue into next week. Monday & Tuesday will also feature PM showers and storms across the area, with highs in the low 90s.

There are some indications that by midweek some dry air may work into Southwest Florida. This would lower the rain and storm chances from Wednesday thru Friday, but likely not eliminate the threat. Temps will hold in the low 90s.

Tropical Update

It is very quiet in the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea and the open waters of the Atlantic as we head into the weekend. With Saharan dust in the area, it will be difficult for any tropical disturbances to develop.

No major activity is expected in the tropics over the next 5 days. Return to index of stories...

About 20 cuz I want to put them on Instagram and send them to my friends.

THE TREND IS A SOURCE OF CONCERN, AT TIMES, FOR THEIR MOM.

Girls are so mean and cruel to each other so I'm always worried about what

my daughter is posting or what she may have on.

COURTNEY HOTCHKIS OF PASADENA, CALIFORNIA LIKES THE CREATIVE OUTLET SELFIES

PROVIDE HER TWO GIRLS, BUT SAYS SHE WORRIES, TOO.

20:14:1020:16:00 I have seen selfies that they've taken and posted that I've

found inappropriate and I've asked them to take them down.

PARENTING EXPERTS SAY THERE'S REASON FOR CONCERN. THERE ARE NOW SELFIE

BEAUTY PAGEANTS. AND GROWING PRESSURES FOR GIRLS TO POST REVEALING

SELFIES FOR BOYS TO OGLE, EVEN RATE.

If your child develops a compulsion or an obsession with selfies, you

intervene the way yuo would with any other compulsion. You investigate, you

find out why that's happening.

THE EXPERTS WE SPOKE WITH SAY PARENTS SHOULD ERR ON THE SAFE SIDE AND

MONITOR SELFIES.

Like fire or dynamite, selfies can be wonderfully constructive or terrible,

destructive, dangerous. but having said that, most of the use of seflies is
