well, because again, it is not going to be pick up and moved away by the main flow of the atmosphere, forecast rain amounts impressive depending on location. we take you through the rest of the day here, some rain, couple of tents of an inch, half inch in some spots, but already by tomorrow evening that next system coming in with the rain will build in, rotate through from south to north, essentially, and as early as tomorrow evening, we will be dodging more rain. now this is rough stuff, brooke, talking to you, beyonce concert at the linc, so on thursday night, looking like we could have about inch every rain on the ground already by that point. >> she is worth it. >> she is worth it. gives you the heads up. may not want to deal with the intrinsic air style, may want to go out with your rain gear and poncho, and have excellent time. be ready to get wet thursday night. but it is not just thursday t likely continues into friday and likely even left over shower saturday. we could easily ends up with multiple inches of rainout of the storm system, depending where you are, we could have upward of 4 inches talking
over span of several days, but prolonged system, as we look at the seven day, rest of today has been drying out, will continue to do so, tomorrow looks good through the daylight hours, but then tomorrow evening at the earliest the rain starts to move in. i keep the umbrella ready from that point through thursday, friday, showers become a lot more scattered in nature, and we could even have lingering shower saturday. so again we need the rain, if we have solid three, four days of it, it could put a dent in the deficit. >> hey, i'm hey. everything was dying in my yard. those trees and everything else. >> good for you. i can't keep one. i have a rock garden. >> i just need to know to wear my rain boots. >> there you go. >> now for little hollywood glamour in china, how about it? dozens of personal items belong to go iconic actress marilyn monroe are on display if beijing. this is a private viewing by chinese collectors ahead of an auction in the u.s. in november.
