year to go. speaking of hurricanes, we've got a couple of disturbances at the least, kiko, mario, lorena which made landfall across the southern tip of baja california as a category 1, now back over water expected to make a second landfall as we get through the next day or so. mario will kind of parallel the coastline. shouldn't be too big of a deal. maybe bring in more waves but not nearly as strong alo so lorena heading north and it will bring moisture up into the southwest which by the way hasn't had a whole lot with the monsoon this year. it's been pretty dry, as a matter of fact, phoenix is a couple inches below average and they'll get some rainfall here. i think more so monday into monday night, and they could see two, three inches of rain, and as you know, in the desert southwest, that's enough to do some flash flooding so i would anticipate seeing some flash flood watches posted as we go towards tomorrow night into monday. that's a check on what's happening nationally good saturday morning pmg check out the breeze that doesn't exist here from our roof
