A stationary front will remain in place across the area today. A disturbance will track southeast along the front bringing the threat of showers and thunderstorms, especially this afternoon. Storms could produce gusty winds and very heavy rainfall.

Storms are expected to taper off this evening with just a spotty shower or storm overnight. Another complex of thunderstorms is forecast to move into the area toward daybreak Friday.

Showers and thunderstorms are likely through a good part of the day Friday as another disturbance moves across the area. Once again, very heavy rainfall will be a threat.

Activity will once again taper off Friday night, with many areas remaining dry through Saturday. While we cannot completely rule out a shower or storm, coverage should be much less that today or Friday. Temperatures will be near or slightly above average through Saturday.
