Matt, thanks very much. Now the hurricane forecast for this year. It's expected to be a very active season with the first potential named storm of 2021 already on its way. Ginger is tracking that for us this morning. Good morning again, ginger. Michael, good morning. I don't know about you but I feel like 2020's hurricane season just ended but, sure enough, a week and a half away from the official start. We're here on the Jersey shore because this is just one of the vulnerable spots when it comes to hurricane season and we have two areas of interest already on the map. Unbelievable to think that would be Ana and bill if they end up forming but no matter what happens, the one that is in the gulf coast, that's the one that we're going to be watching for to move toward Texas and Louisiana throughout the beginning of this weekend. There are areas there already picking up 20 inches of rain just this week and so they've been so saturated. Flash flooding could be an issue. Port Arthur up to texarkana and New Orleans included as we go through the weekend. Here along the east coast we'll see big surf from North Carolina and the outer banks through these little slivers of land along the Jersey shore. I wanted to also show you the image of what we can expect for this season. So this is the official noaa outlook, six to ten hurricanes expected, above average because we got warm water, we have lack of wind shear that cuts down on hurricanes and finally a very active western monsoon that will start up thunderstorms that eventually become hurricanes, It does seem like last year's season just ended. Thank you so much for that.
