Rain will start up early, before sunrise and rain will become widespread by 7 a.m. There will be rain on and off through the morning and we will dry up in time for the evening commute on Friday. Preliminary rainfall totals are expected to be 1-3 inches with isolated higher amounts. It is possible that the typical problem spots hold water on Friday. Keep an eye out for the low spots.
