WEATHER-WXWALL


Scattered downpours into this afternoon

Winds coming in from the Gulf of Mexico will continue to pump scattered downpours into Southwest Florida this morning and afternoon. With additional cloud cover from the rain and isolated thunder, temperatures should peak in the mid-day hours in the upper 80s.

Scattered showers will remain possible this evening, most especially for communities along and east of I-75.

On Friday, we'll begin to enter a more transitional phase for our weather as we change around the wind flow. Wind winds coming in from the north pulling in from a slightly drier air mass, the coverage of rain on Friday should be a bit more isolated than today.

For the upcoming weekend temperatures look to return to the low and mid 90s with late afternoon and early evening sea breeze induced showers and thunderstorms. Return to index of stories...

YOU COULD MURDER SOMEONE AND GET AWAY WITH IT DURING THAT WINDOW.

INSPIRED BY THAT MOVIE --

SOME CAPE CORAL TEENS INVENTED THEIR OWN "PURGE" ON SOCIAL MEDIA SITES.

THEY CALL IT "CAPE PURGE."

"I started seeing it and I mean every single one was just so messed up, it made me so angry."

WHAT TEENAGER REBECCA MEEKS SPOTTED WAS THIS --

AS PART OF THE "CAPE PURGE" --

AND USING IMAGES FROM THE MOVIE "THE PURGE" --

LOCAL BOYS ON TWITTER AND FACEBOOK PLANNED TO POST NUDE PICTURES OF GIRLS THEY KNEW.

"they say they were going to expose these girls."

"this is what entertains people, which is sick."

REBECCA'S MOTHER COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.

"they're so young and so humiliating, I'm afraid they're going to handle it by just wanting to end it all."

IT DID HAPPEN.

SOME NUDE PICTURES WENT UP ONLINE TODAY.

TWITTER HAS SINCE YANKED THEM DOWN AND DELETED THE ACCOUNTS.
