River levels have continued to improve over the last 24 hours, but
unfortunately the dry times will eventually come to an end. Clouds
will increase this afternoon in places that they are currently void
and showers and thunderstorms are likely to develop by late
afternoon. Rain may continue into the overnight hours and into early
Sunday morning with precipitation totals through Sunday morning
expected to be between one-quarter and one-half an inch. Locally
higher amounts are possible in and around thunderstorms. While
tonights rain is not expected to have much of an impact on rivers, it
will set the stage for additional moisture on the ground layer, ahead
of the coming week, which is expected to remain active. This may not
bode well for area streams and rivers going into the new work week.
Additional flooding is possible into next week.
