Getting a thorough workout as well.
We do have a wind advisory that is in effect until 2 o'clock this afternoon.
Again, when advisory in effect to flash flood advisory in effect until ... nine.
Source of precipitation goes all the severe weather all of the potential for any more damaging rain were storms is now well-off towards the east role was back a little bit longer than normal.
Just to give you a idea the magnitude of the scope of this deadly deadly storm system passed through the area.
We are going to have to deal with some clouds but the wind despite having a wind advisory that will help dry up some of the oyster that still standing around out on the roadways again last one until nine wind until two and several dry days ahead.
I don't think we'll see any additional rainfall probably until the up coming weekend.
Murphy tellico, decatur and cleveland as well as scottsboro all at 610, we have got 59 and four noble corp.
Chattanooga an fort a these wind gusts though especially to drive a high profile vehicle take extra caution they have taught 40 miles an hour for good part of the morning.

What 41 years ago.
Over the next seven days were looking at 63 tomorrow possibly a sprinkle tomorrow evening late.
I think i want to take that out of the forecast.

That set a new record breaking the previous record of just over 2 1/2 inche that we set 41 years ago.
The wind advisory stays in effect until 2 o'clock this afternoon.
There's a slight sprinkle chats late late tomorrow but i think that is minimal at best.
Sustained winds right now of 17 in cleveland 20 wanted dunlap and they are obviously gusting quite a bit higher coalmont it dunlap a bit earlier had wins gusting upwards of 50 miles per upwards of 50 mph 50 mph wind gusts that combined with all of the other damaging straight-lin winds assert the caused extensive damage all throughout the area will have a complete look at that coming up in a moment downtown from the epb fiberoptics whether tim that work 590.
