PASSING SHOWERS A.M. AND P.M.

The weather pattern this week has continued to bring an onshore wind to our part of Florida and our morning showers are becoming routine. The forecast calls for a few of the showers in the Gulf of Mexico to continue drifting toward the coastline this evening. Some showers will move briefly over the beaches and continue inland before raining out. Isolated thunderstorms will continue across inland area along the sea breeze boundary. Some areas of heavy rain and frequent lightning are possible through sunset. Temperatures will drop to the upper 70's by tomorrow morning and recover to the lower 90's by the end of the day on Friday. Morning showers and afternoon, inland, thunderstorms are likely again tomorrow.

The tropics continue to be very quiet and we are not tracking any developing storms in the Gulf, Caribbean or open waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Return to index of stories...

IN SECONDS, HE WAS STRANGLING JOANNE.

"his hands were like this."

Sergeant Jim Vachon - Lake County Sheriff's Office - 00:00:35 - It is

possible that she frightened him and he reacted and left the residence

before stealing anything.

THAT'S THE GOOD NEWS.

HE LEFT THROUGH THE SAME DOOR.

then closed it behind him.
