FIRST WEATHER-WX WALL


TRACKING SLIGHTLY DRIER AIR

The onshore winds continued on Thursday, with scattered showers and storms developing. This activity may push back into the Urban Corridor later this evening, with temps holding in the 80s. Expect the storms to diminish overnight, with lows in the upper 70s.

Slightly drier air works into the region starting Friday. Winds will shift from the west to the south and east, reducing the threat for morning rain showers. Showers and storms will develop in the PM hours and slowly diminish in the evening. Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s.

The weekend is still looking fairly decent, with most of both days dry. Showers and storms will develop in the afternoon and early evening, but these will be widely scattered. Highs both Saturday and Sunday will be in the low to mid 90s.

Even more dry air works into Southwest Florida to start next week, keeping rain and storm chances low. Only an isolated shower will be possible on Monday, with highs in the mid 90s.

Rain chances do increase as we move through next week, with highs holding in the low to mid 90s.

TROPICAL UPDATE

With Bertha now history, things are very quiet in the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean and the open waters of the Atlantic.

A couple of tropical waves are floating between the Lesser Antilles and Africa, but those will have a difficult time developing.

DAILY SEX-PKG


SCRIPT:

Two little kids. Two hectic jobs. But, no

more excuses - and let's face it:

we've heard 'em all!

MEG CONLEY, Utah Mom

"I'm tired; I don't feel well; I don't like how I look;

I have to lose another ten pounds."

With babies and a busy schedule,

29-year old Meg Conley

was feeling not-so-sexy, and was

worried she was losing touch

with her husband of eight years -

Riley Bingham.

MEG CONLEY, Utah mom

"And, I realized that we hadn't even

TOUCHED each other for, like, eight days -

which was CRAZY for us!"

ABBIE BOUDREAU:

"Were you noticing that you weren't

as intimate, as often?"

RILEY BINGHAM, Meg's husband

"Absolutely!"

So, Meg came up with an experiment to

get their spark back.

MEG CONLEY, Utah mom

"He got home from work that night and I was like,

'What if we just have sex every night for the next

month?' And he was like, 'Yeah! What if we

DO?' So, so, so we DID!"

ABBIE BOUDREAU:

"And you're thinkin'."

RILEY BINGHAM, Meg's husband

"Hit the lottery. I dropped my

bag out of shock!"

ABBIE BOUDREAU:

"Was it like - every night, you're

actually doin' the deed? Correct?"

MEG CONLEY, Utah mom:

"Yes!"

ABBIE BOUDREAU:

"Did you ever feel like, 'I am JUST too

tired today'?"

MEG CONLEY, Utah mom:

"Oh, absolutely. There were times where I

would have to look in the bathroom mirror

and, like, psych myself up, like, 'You can do

this!

And, then, AFTER two weeks - I, I CRAVED it!"

She wrote about their journey on her

blog, 'Meg in Progress' - really striking a

chord with couples: some calling her idea

"brilliant", while others saying:

it's "oversimplified."

ABBIE BOUDREAU:

"What do you think this did for your marriage?"

MEG CONLEY, Utah mom

"It added excitement.

He would come home from work and he'd

come into the kitchen, like, pick me up

and twirl me around.

It felt like we were kids again! - and we

were TALKING more to each other.

We got on the same team again."

RILEY BINGHAM, Meg's husband

"We did talk a lot more. We became

much more generous; less selfish."

And, though they say they are no longer

having sex EVERY DAY.

RILEY BINGHAM, Meg's husband

"We still make it a point to be INTIMATE every

day, whether its hand holding

or kissing - something that's just: her and

I, where we feel close. No matter how

long the day is - it's just us."

For Good Morning America, Abbie Boudreau,

ABC News, Provo, Utah.

FIRST WEATHER-WX WALL


TRACKING SLIGHTLY DRIER AIR

The onshore winds continued on Thursday, with scattered showers and storms developing. This activity may push back into the Urban Corridor later this evening, with temps holding in the 80s. Expect the storms to diminish overnight, with lows in the upper 70s.

Slightly drier air works into the region starting Friday. Winds will shift from the west to the south and east, reducing the threat for morning rain showers. Showers and storms will develop in the PM hours and slowly diminish in the evening. Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s.

The weekend is still looking fairly decent, with most of both days dry. Showers and storms will develop in the afternoon and early evening, but these will be widely scattered. Highs both Saturday and Sunday will be in the low to mid 90s.

Even more dry air works into Southwest Florida to start next week, keeping rain and storm chances low. Only an isolated shower will be possible on Monday, with highs in the mid 90s.

Rain chances do increase as we move through next week, with highs holding in the low to mid 90s.

TROPICAL UPDATE

With Bertha now history, things are very quiet in the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean and the open waters of the Atlantic.

A couple of tropical waves are floating between the Lesser Antilles and Africa, but those will have a difficult time developing.
