...Rains Return Today Thru The Weekend, Localized Flooding Possible...

Rain chances will continue this evening and overnight as the area remains in an unsettled weather pattern. Mostly cloudy skies carry over into tomorrow, but highs will see an increase with southerly flow. Look for temperatures back in the 60s. Unsettled weather continues into the weekend with additional chances for rainfall. Since the ground is already well saturated, this could result in localized flooding problems during heavy downpours.
