We're still getting some rain, especially east of Houston. Still getting some wind again east of Houston and some wraparound raining. Some spoke Sparks Katie. I think it's getting a little rain right now and and then some other places where the rain had stopped a little bit, but it's all pretty much of the light variety right here. Nothing really, to give all concerned at this point, the heavier bands that I'm looking here it looks like it's all out there in the gulf. It's out over water, but you're getting that swirling around now. So we're getting rain as far north as Nacogdoches, and it's coming back around through the Woodlands. It's even getting some into sugar, land and silly and so you know, but this is light rain. Nothing. Nothing in the systems can pretty much handle at this particular point. Important thing is, it's It's continuing to move eastward. And so, yes, Beaumont is getting a lot of right. I mean, the rain bands go all the way over to Baton Rouge past New Orleans now, so, uh, But again, it's not those training storms that you worry about that right? Let's hope the roads are in good shape lists. Check in with sky Mike and see what we're seeing out there. What he what he got. For the main lines are actually all right. You know Normally, if we weren't going to have a big rain flooding of it to 88 downtown would be a river. But it's not. That's not the story to the east of town, The 1 46. I'm getting reports of scattered flood spots mainly around rich around Seabrook and Chema. But to 25 is totally shut down The Port Freeway totally shut down main lines only between Richie And Shaver.

The latest update on Nicholas is that it is continuing to weekend as expected, 60 Mile an hour sustained winds. Still vary slowly moving off to the north Northeast. Now at about eight miles an hour. This is going to continue this very slow movement, eventually moving northeast and then East. Um, but it's about 15 miles off to the south southwest of Houston, So the center of the storm is close enough to us that it's still going to be a nuisance. For the next couple hours.
