.Upper level high pressure to our east and upper level low

into our region starting on Saturday. By Saturday evening we will
see the risk of thunderstorms that will be capable of producing
very heavy rainfall totals of 1 to 2 inches of rain in an hour
through Monday morning, with isolated totals of 3 to 4 inches
possible. The chances for rain will continue during much of next

Monday.
