Discussion

Our very wet weather pattern will continue into the weekend and localized flash flooding will become an increasing concern. The frontal system that moved through late Tuesday remains in close proximity and waves of low pressure will impact the region over the next few days. One low pressure system will push offshore later this afternoon and there can be a bit of a break in the rain. However, a stronger low pressure systems will impact us with steadier and heavier rain from later tonight into late Friday night. The stationary front that has stuck around this area will lift north as a warm front late Saturday and there is hope for some sunshine on Sunday along with noticeably warmer conditions.
