SAME SEX MARRIAGE FL-TC-VO-TC


NOW AT 11 --

A BIG RULING OUT OF MIAMI-DADE.

A JUDGE OVERTURNED FLORIDA'S BAN ON SAME-SEX MARRIAGE -- CALLING IT UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

IT'S THE SECOND-SUCH RULING TO COME DOWN IN THE STATE IN TWO WEEKS.

STILL - IT DOESN'T MEAN MUCH FOR GAY COUPLES IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA.

IT ONLY APPLIES TO SAME-SEX COUPLES LIVING IN MIAMI-DADE COUNTY.

EVEN THEY WON'T BE ABLE TO GET MARRIED TOMORROW.

ATTORNEY GENERAL PAM BONDI HAS APPEALED THE RULING.

A JUDGE IN TALLAHASSEE WILL RULE ANY DAY NOW ON THE BAN.

10 SAME-SEX COUPLES WHO GOT MARRIED IN OTHER STATES HAVE FILED SUIT IN THE STATE CAPITOL.

REGARDLESS OF HOW THE JUDGE THERE RULES - THE DECISION WILL BE APPEALED.

WEATHER-WXWALL


TRACKING WEEKEND RAIN PROSPECTS

Showers and thunderstorms for areas east of I-75 will continue rumbling across the region this afternoon and evening, while widely spotty areas of rain move about our coastal areas.

As the later evening approaches, it will be possible for a passing isolated storm or downpour to build back toward the coast, but coverage of this activity will remain low.

Temperatures tonight will range from the upper 70s along the coast to low and mid 70s east of the interstate.

On Saturday, we'll again stand the opportunity for a coastal shower or thunderstorm in the morning and early afternoon. By the afternoon though, the greatest coverage of rain and thunder will again develop across the interior of the peninsula east of I-75.

Temperatures on Saturday look seasonal with highs ranging from the upper 80s to low 90s along the beaches to mid 90s for areas further inland.

Further into the forecast, we will be keeping close tabs on a mass of dry air that will infiltrate our region. That should help to greatly reduce our rain prospects Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. During this time rain chances will be below seasonal levels and temperatures will be allowed to return to near 94 degrees each afternoon.

TROPICAL UPDATE

No tropical cyclones are active at this time and no organized activity is expected within the next two days. Return to index of stories...
