again Friday. Warmer than normal temperatures can be expected
Friday and Saturday ahead of a strong low pressure system that
will move over our area Sunday. Severe storms and widepsread rain
of several inches are expected Sunday. Monday and Tuesday will be
dry but another low pressure system will bring widespread rain
