...Heavy rainfall expected through the weekend...

.Many locations received in excess of two inches of rainfall last
weekend. The ground has had little time to recover from this
amount of rain, and many locations are already saturated. Some
locations received between one and two inches of rain again on
Thursday, and another two to three inches of rainfall is possible
through Sunday afternoon. This means that flooding will continue
to be a possibility across the forecast area.
