Trending soggy this weekend

We are tracking the best rain chance, and likely the heaviest rainfall we’ve had for a while, for the Weather First Area this weekend. Showers and a few thunderstorms will rumble through later in the day, especially the afternoon and evening on Friday. After a brief lull very early Saturday, more showers and storms will rumble through Saturday afternoon, some of which could be strong, possibly even severe. Damaging wind and large hail will be the primary threats, along with heavy rain at times. The soaking rain will stay with us Saturday night and throughout most of Sunday, before it all wraps up early on Monday. While it’s too early to pin-point exact numbers on how much rain we will see, the latest trends are suggesting an inch or so by Monday morning for most of the area.
