SOGGY SATURDAY
Our next storm system moves in for Saturday and it brings us a full day of wet weather.  Expect showers and downpours all day, totaling 1.5-3” in most locations, with locally higher amounts.  Some localized flooding on roads, poor drainage areas, and small creeks and streams may occur with already saturated grounds.  Highs will be held in the upper 60s thanks to this steady rain.  Rain will slowly break up overnight.  Be prepared and stay alert for rising waters, especially if you’ve been in trouble in the past.  A flood watch is in effect from 2 A.M. tonight through 2 A.M. Sunday morning.
