...Showers Through The Weekend...

.DISCUSSION...an area of low pressure will continue to scatter showers across
the region through Sunday. Accumulations will be less compared to Friday, but local
amounts to 1/2 inch are possible. Unsettled weather for next week with the potential
for some rain makers, although they could just as easily pass north and south of the
local area. Expect some fluctuation in the potential outcomes until we get closer
to the day. After mostly near normal temperatures this weekend, a bump up to a few
degrees above the late March normals are expected for next week.
