BREAKING WEATHER

SEVERE STORMS POSSIBLE OVERNIGHT & SUNDAY

It looks like some wet weather is headed our way tonight with the possibility of some severe storms overnight. A warm front is pushing north from the Gulf of Mexico into Northwest Florida as a storm system to the west of us moves in as well. Both look like theyll make for some showers with heavy rainfall possible at times. We also have the chance to see isolated storms close to the coast. Our chance for severe weather increases Sunday as the warm front tracks northeast. We could see strong thunderstorms, damaging winds, and we cant rule out the possibility of an isolated tornado. Some flooding could be possible due to the potential for heavy rainfall. Stay tuned to Channel 3 News for the latest updates.

HEALTH NEWS: Eating Healthy Costs

HEALTH NEWS:  Eating Healthy Costs story image
Many people want to eat healthy, but think it's just too expensive.
But, some researchers at Harvard say that's not necessarily true.

Most of us know the difference between fresh salmon and frozen fishsticks one is probably better for you.

But there's another difference. The one at the cash register.
Conventional wisdom suggests healthy foods are harder on the wallet. True?

Harvard researchers say, not necessarily. They looked at 27 studies to look at the real cost of healthy eating.  They found the difference between nutritious and the not-so-good... boiled down to an average of just one dollar and fifty cents per day.

A difference in price is most noticeable in meat.  Healthier options for proteins tend to cost more than less healthy options. But the difference is smaller than most of us think.

And for some food categories, like dairy, healthier options are barely more expensive than unhealthy ones.

When a healthy diet helps you avoid obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes - it's a small price to pay.
