anything. >> indira petersons who just returned from the tornadoes is joining us. a couple of questions, yesterday, when you were there, you were talking about the fact they were expecting rain and did that pan out? >> fortunately, yeah, storm kicking up. lighter rain expected in the forecast today. but then especially as you go through thursday and friday some heavier rain is in the forecast for them. not to mention still very cold, temperatures in the 40s and getting colder as we go through the weekend. as far as the rest of the country, let's talk about this dome of high pressure in place for us today. we're talking about temperatures on the mild side. five to ten degrees below normal
