And what's happening along the coast there in what could happen later today on into tomorrow, making good morning. Thanks for being back from these, So this thing is a slow mover, right? Yeah, that's the biggest problem. J. T is just Ah, it's weekend Category one status, but it's moving so slowly, almost standing still just about two MPH so that is going to produce. It looks like historic flooding for the coastal areas of Mobile and Baldwin County and into the Florida Panhandle just east of Pensacola. They could get anywhere from 15 to 25 inches. That's a couple of feet of rain. Some places maybe even 30 inches of rain, So it's just like I said. Could prove to be historic for that area. So ah, I think that really is the greatest threat. You can't rule out. You know, some spin up tornadoes there. But man, they're just getting hammered with lots and lots of rainfall in the coastal areas. I do want to say Ah, two different models put this thing going in different directions. One state keeps it a little further to the south, and that would mean not as much impact for us here at home. But if it moves further to the north course it increases our rain chances. We do have a flash flood watch from Jefferson County southward for tonight. Going into Ah Thursday morning. So let's just, you know, prepare for the worst, but hope for the best with Sally. What's the timeline Mickey?.
