|(Tropical Storm Lee Making Landfall)|
At one point just before landfall, Lee had developed a second center of circulation. But despite the unorganized structure of Tropical Storm Lee, it looks like the rainfall estimates will be met. Nearly 10 inches of rain has been measured in several spots across Louisiana, and rain will continue to fall there throughout the day. The Storm Prediction Center had received 10 tornado reports from Louisiana to Florida, but damaged was not reported with those. Lee will likely weaken to a depression later today as he moves ENE across Louisiana towards Mississippi.

Tropical storm Katia is forecast to continue on a northwest heading throughout the day tomorrow. It has been very difficult to forecast just when Katia will take a northward turn and begin to move away from land, but still today there is every indication that she is going to be a serious land-teaser. She is still being forecast to move very close to North Carolina and slide right up the northeast coastline before running out into the open ocean. A landfall on the US coast cannot be ruled out yet, and Katia strengthening into a major hurricane cannot be ruled out yet either. There is still a lot of time to watch her though. It will likely take 5 days before she approaches the coast.
