...High Rainfall Accumulations Expected Through Saturday Night...

of rain, possibly higher in some locations, before it ends late

pushes in later this afternoon and tonight giving us between 1/4
to 1/2 inch of rain. The second and more impressive round arrives
Saturday afternoon and evening, bringing an additional 1 to 2
inches of rain. A few thunderstorms are expected Saturday evening
and this may cause locally higher amounts.

this past Tuesday into Tuesday night, helping to saturate the
ground in those areas. The additional heavy rain expected over the
next few days could result in smaller rivers and streams to rise.
