louisianna. so any place in it path, and the bands that are pretty far out from the center of the storm, going to get between six and in some places 12 inches of rain. so the rainfall will march up to the north and east it, could start to affect our forecast, friday night, into saturday. so we'll keep close eye on this. there is the leading edge of some of the bands moving as far north as northern alabama. for us, though, we don't have, well, we don't have any more rain to show you. had couple of isolated showers but looks like they've disappeared just as quickly as they arrived. future cast, looks pretty good for the daylight today. the daytime i should say today. but tonight, into tomorrow, some rain rolls in, looks like it could be raining 4:00, 5:00 t little bit of break in the afternoon. then, we move into saturday morning, with another chance of showers and thunderstorms, some of this associated with cindy moisture, but out of here by about noon or 1:00 in
