this i think puts it in perspective. a few minutes ago, you saw the video from louisiana you're looking at 48 hour rainfall totals. and i'm used to seeing in one big event a pocket. an area here or there or a neighborhood where you might see 10, 12 inches. but to see a line from memphis through arkansas half of louisiana into eastern texas, showing amounts that you're seeing in white on the order of a foot to 14 inches of rain, there is also pockets around college station, out here in the piney woods, 8 inches of rain. over a foot on the texas and louisiana state line. up through areas on the mississippi river. that's why this is such a big deal. even baton rouge, 7 inches
there's more still coming. closing in on 15 inches of rain by estimates. we've been hearing reports from louisiana on the order of 20 inches in some isolated areas. with more coming tonight and tomorrow, that's why this is such a big deal. this low will eventually get going and will be a chance of rain for us eventually. but as well with that to the west and high pressure to the east of us, being wedged in between the is why you had all that wind the last couple of days. now i want to look at temperatures right now. 73 in tampa is where we currently sit. 2 degrees warmer than last night at this time. 68 in lakeland. and we'll cool only a few degrees. temperatures around 64 to 65 degrees. one heads up for tomorrow. could see some patchy fog. i don't think the whole area is going to be blanketed with fog. with higher dewpoints, i do want to give you a heads up. that might be in the
4:30. a few more clouds will be likely tomorrow. but the tradeoff i think the wind calms we will still have a breezy day with temperatures reaching 84 degrees. i've got southeast winds around 5-15 miles an hour. gusts around 20. we could even on the water see pockets of around 25. but not like the last couple days. fishing departments have not been happy with the -- captains have not been happy with the winds. friday and saturday nice and warm. and most of the weekend is really nice. the one thing about sunday, a few showers. not a washout. about a 50% coverage between 3:00 and 7:00. spotty. and with behind it. we're back in the 80s monday through thursday of next week.
