.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday night through Wednesday

Thunderstorms bringing torrential rainfall and possible severe
weather are expected to move through the region late Saturday
evening through Sunday evening. Areas of flooding are likely due
to the potential for rainfall of 2 to 3 inches or more to fall in
a relatively short amount of time. Also, hail and damaging wind
gusts will also be possible but a few tornadoes cannot be ruled
out as well.
