It appears that scattered rain showers will begin to spread into the area Thursday afternoon. On and off showers will continue Thursday night and Friday morning, with the frequency and intensity of the showers picking up Friday afternoon. The period of the greatest amount of rainfall right now appears to be from Friday afternoon through Saturday morning. With little change to the pattern with the slow-moving low pressure system, the moisture feed off the Atlantic will persist through Saturday. The low pressure system starts to weaken a little and should move far enough away that rain chances will decrease for Sunday. I still think there will be enough moisture around to produce some scattered showers on Sunday, but they should be less frequent and less intense. The total amount of rainfall that can be expected through the event is expected to be between a half inch and one and a half inches. With all the rain and cloud cover, temperatures will be cool, staying at or below 70 degrees for most of the event.
