Strong to severe storms expected Friday across Central Florida

Most of Central Florida is under a risk of severe storms Friday, Severe Weather Center 9 meteorologist Rusty McCranie said. A line storms will rake across Florida during the day.

 

“Strong to severe storms will enter the picture late this afternoon, and the threat will stick with us through the evening and overnight hours,” McCranie said.

 

The average high in Central Florida Friday is 80 degrees, which is considerably warmer than it’s been all week.

 

There will be a lot of wind produced by the storms, so the main threats are damaging strait-line wind and isolated tornadoes.

“Expect gusty winds to accompany this line and with rotational energy as well, isolated tornadoes are possible,” McCranie said.

 

But the rainy weather will bring cooler weather for the weekend.

Huggable moment: Kindergartners' daily greeting goes viral

Hugs can go a long way toward making someone’s day happy.

>> Read more trending news 

That’s the idea behind a viral video shot at a kindergarten class in northwest Wisconsin, KARE reported. It was a huggable moment by students that has been viewed more than 10 million times on social media.

The reaction to the video on Facebook, shot at an elementary school in the tiny village of Birchwood, surprised Nicole Schlapper, the teacher who came up with the idea.

“It’s incredible,” Schlapper told KARE. “Within a few days it went crazy.”

The video shows Schlapper’s students choosing the way they wanted to be welcomed to class. The choices included a handshake, a fist bump, a wave, a high-five or a hug.

On the day Schlapper recorded her video, the assigned greeter was 5-year-old Colin Baker. In the video, most of his classmates chose to hug Colin.

“He’s so loving,” Schlapper told KARE. “He loves hugs.”

Schlapper told the television station she began using the greeting this school year, and said she liked the idea that her students had a choice.

“I think some mornings for them at home might not be easy,” Schlapper told KARE. “Maybe they don’t want a hug that day, maybe just a simple wave is all they need. We just want it to be a good, positive start to the day.”

The incident happened Dec. 7.

Carlas Smith, 47, is accused of using her hands to push a 10-year-old student in the chest, causing the victim to fall to the floor, according to DeKalb County police. The woman initially approached the child in a provoking way, according to a warrant.

The warrant did not provide any other details on what led up to the incident.

Smith was arrested Thursday and later appeared before a judge.

Some parents said the woman was friendly and competent, especially on field trips. Her arrest is something they never expected.

"I think it's upsetting," one parent said.

DeKalb County Schools has not commented on the incident.
