We have had the benefit of some dry weather over the past few days. A weak cold front will move through the area later this afternoon and evening that will bring just ahead of it the chance for thunderstorms. I believe some of these storms will be strong.
Rain chances have been building in the forecast for Saturday. As we are now around 36 hours away from this event starting in the county I wanted to give you a very brief update.
As we prepare for our 4th straight day of rainfall in the county. We are also preparing for possible severe weather later this evening. I will provide details on the potential impacts as I go through this post with you. Let's start with the arrival of the rainfall in the county.

The best way to prepare you for today is by giving you advice. That advice is "It's a good day to stay inside" Rain will be our big issue for the day. Late this evening in the northern portions of the county we could see a rain sleet mix. No concerns for icy accumulation.
