.DISCUSSION...
Dry conditions will continue through the end of the work week but
changes are on the way for this weekend.  Our first significant
chance of rain in over a month and a half will arrive later this
weekend along with a strong cold front. While the rain chances
on Saturday will be very scattered, more widespread rainfall
will materialize Saturday Night into Sunday. At this time,
it appears that widespread one to three inches of rainfall
will be possible before the system moves east of our
region on Monday of next week.
