It's a potential for the cyclone to become Claudette. The number one impact is fashion 6 to 12 inches of rain quickly. Winds up to 50 miles per hour. If you're anywhere from intercoastal Louisiana up to mobile, you want to watch out. By Sunday the rain will be moving off to the north and east and be he from South Carolina to North Carolina. That heat, we're talking about widespread record heat expanding. Anywhere from Illinois back to California. St. Louis today at 103. Palm Springs had 123 which is an all time record they tied there.
