Heavy rains and gusty winds are in the forecast for your Friday.
The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch from 7 a.m. Friday through Saturday morning. The weather service has also issued a high wind warning from Friday afternoon through late Friday night.
An intense low pressure system will bring heavy rains throughout the day Friday. One to two inches of rain is expected. A rumble of thunder is not out of the question. Minor street flooding is possible. Winds will also be on the increase Friday with gusts reaching 40 to 50 mph.
A brisk northwest wind will keep temperatures cool for your Saturday. Expect mostly cloudy skies with temperatures in the mid 30s.
Clouds will be on the increase overnight Saturday as a weak low pressure system approaches from the west. Some light precipitation is expected during the day Sunday. With forecast temperatures hovering near the freezing mark, it is too close to tell whether the precipitation will fall as rain or snow. However, any precipitation that does fall will be light and little to no accumulation is expected.
Look for another batch of rain for your Monday. Rain could be heavy at times with an additional inch of precipitation expected.
On Tuesday, skies will begin to clear once again. Expect temperatures near more seasonable levels.
