Tracking heavy rain

After noon on Thursday, we'll see less and less showers.

FLOOD WATCH: We’ll get 1-3″ of rain, tonight.  Expect the widespread scattered showers to be heavy at times.  While our bigger creeks and streams can handle 1-3″ of rain, we will see some flash flooding in low spots with poor water drainage or around the small streams.  We’ll particularly see this in spots that get heavy rain over a short period of time or in spots that continually get heavy rain.  As a result, the National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch.  It stays in effect until Friday morning.

TRACKING RAIN: After widespread scattered showers Thursday morning, we get drier throughout the day.  In fact, we’ll see only a few showers in the afternoon.  On Friday, we’ll have just a few showers and spend most of the day dry.  Expect highs in the upper 60s Thursday and Friday.

We'll see showers for the next few days.

SUNNIER SKIES: On Saturday, we’ll see some breaks of sun.  The sun helps our temperature climb to 72 by the afternoon.  While we’ll get a few hit-or-miss showers, expect to have dry weather for most of the day.  On Sunday, we get even sunnier, and get highs in the mid 70s, as a result.  While a spot or two will get a quick shower, most of us stay dry all day.

We'll have sunnier skies next week.

We've got 70s all next week.
