.DISCUSSION...

Rain starting time will be difficult. Models continue to bring in
scattered showers to central and eastern areas overnight, but we
have a little bit to go before we are moist enough. The rain chances
overnight into Sunday morning after 1 am are about 50/50, but
the more appreciable rain amounts will hold off until midday Sunday
and beyond.

Rain chances return tonight, with widespread rainfall Sunday into
Sunday night. A moist air mass will linger over the area for the
first half of the upcoming week.
