FLOOD WATCH

Chance of a few showers in some areas goes up Friday after 8pm with scattered showers at times Saturday with SOME dry hours daytime Saturday as well. The bulk of the rain comes Saturday evening through Sunday.

***FLOOD WATCH ISSUED FOR THE WEEKEND***

More on the radio and on the forecast page as always 24/7.

It will not be a non-stop continuous rain, yet rain is likely both days of the weekend and at any given spot at any given hour the threat of rain will be there, because if its not raining on you one moment it will be somewhere nearby, and vice versa.

As of now SUNDAY looks to have the most rain of the two weekend days.

No damaging thunderstorms are expected as of now, but some thunder and lightning will be embedded in the weekend rain in some areas.

Rainfall totals through Monday 2-4 inches.

Expect ponding of water on roads and highways at times in a few spots and creeks, streams and rivers will come up again with isolated flooding possible by Sunday into Monday.
