5:45 pm
5:46 pm
5:47 pm
barry has not been downgraded to a tropical depression, but even so it has swapped parts of louisiana with torrential rain and flooding. statement what is left is not transformed part of the mississippi delta into with the state governor described as an ocean. steve has more now from warren county, mississippi. >> tropical depression barry has done more than a foot and a half of rain in parts of louisiana and it's not done yet. the storm continues to head north. bringing more torrential rain and prompting new flash flood warnings in louisiana and mississippi. barry hit the louisiana coast on saturday as a category 1 hurricane. then quickly weakened to a
5:48 pm
tropical storm. more than 90 people were rescued, but there were no reports of weather related fatalities it. officials in louisiana touring the damage on monday. the governor says he is grateful that barry did not cause the disastrous floods that were predict. >> we are gratified we did not get the amount of rain and the flooding we had been told to expect. we are also very thankful of the fact that the mississippi river stayed within the levees. >> about 8 inches of rain has fallen in parts of mississippi. forecasters say several more inches are possible. that is causing concern in areas of the world delta. already flooded from the mississippi river and its backwaters. the governor of mississippi tweeted that the delta has become an ocean. he is pushing hard for federally built pumps to alleviate the problem. >> so much water. >> let's bring in don martin because it's just the opposite out here. >> it's so different. mediterranean climate. that is where we live it. it is a dry summer and a wet winter. most other places in the
5:49 pm
country have a wet summer and wet winter or what have you. they get rain in the summer months. that is why we have such fire issues. the problem with barry certainly was that they had so much rain as before it even made landfall from other systems and tropical disturbances. here it is. it is not a tropical depression, but it is still pumping a lot of rain. they did dodge a bullet. they did not get the 2 feet of rain that would have caused a lot of issues. still something to watch in the tropics are certainly active this time of the year. we will be watching to hear more and such out there. with that said, what is happening here. not much. a little fog along the coast. highs will then get pumped back and we will see temperatures beginning to plummet a little bit. just not as warm as you might

expect. tomorrow it will be. tomorrow will be just like today. current temperatures. it's warm, but i would not call that hot. significant winds blowing out of the west at the airport in san francisco. some gusts up to 45 miles per hour. sustained at 38. it's windy if you are out there. your noticing the wind. you can see what it's doing to the top of the father bank. is ripping apart. that is probably one of the reasons we are nothing but fog out there. when the winds died on the fog will come back big time. tomorrow will be a warm day. a nice day. as we get into wednesday night and mostly thursday and friday
5:51 pm
you notice temperatures drop as the system gets closer to us. a nice day overall. and temperatures will drop a little bit. the real headline here. the big take away is we are not looking at he waves at this point and we are not looking at red flag warnings of huge fire concerns or huge air-quality issues. that is huge for this time of year because it takes nothing to get a red flag warning essentially when you get this late in the season. we are not seeing that, so it's another week that cal fire can prepare for what is inevitable. the fires that will be coming. we are dead in fire season right now and so we do not have triple digit heat on the top- tier number. i feel pretty good. i think you do also because it's a much better environment. when the trough gets your temperatures will drop a. these are the hotspots and they're going to be in the mid 80s or upper 80s. definitely a good pattern if you're thinking about fires and air-quality. >> 007 making headlines again. it's been reported that for the 1st time ever 007 will be played by a woman. she started captain marvel.
