Showers and thunderstorms will continue through Saturday. We’ll be monitoring pockets of heavier rain as they may affect swollen area rivers. As long as event rain totals don’t exceed 2.5” and 6-12 hour amounts don’t top 2”, local rivers should stay within their banks.


Today and Tonight: Friday is shaping up to be the most unsettled frame of the week. Showers and thunderstorms will be more widespread with temperatures not making it beyond the low 70s thanks to clouds and rain. Overnight, spotty showers will move about the area with lows dropping into the lower 60s.

Up Next: Showers will linger into Saturday as a front clears the area and temperatures level off. Most will find readings in the mid 60s by late afternoon. As skies clear, Sunday will start chilly in the mid 40s with sun and mid 60s in the afternoon. Monday will bring a cold start to the new week with lows right around 40. Highs in the 70s return Tuesday and Wednesday.
