The holding pattern in our weather continues today as that slow moving area of low pressure meanders to our west. It’ll make slow easterly progress today leaving us in the zone for showers and thunderstorms. Severe weather isn’t a concern this afternoon but pockets of heavy rain will soak roads, yards and rivers. Most of us will see 1-2” fill rain gauges through the first half of the weekend. A flood watch is set to go into effect for many of our eastern counties near I-75 at 2:00 pm. The more east you are, your rain totals will push 2-3” through Saturday morning; that puts a strain on rivers, creeks and low lying areas. Rain in this set up won’t be a constant long lasting sheet, there will be breaks, and when they happen it’ll be cloudy and in the upper 70s. Come Saturday afternoon signs still point to a slight end to the messy weather. Our official forecast calls for lingering showers Saturday evening and Sunday with temperatures creeping back to near 80°. The extended thinking is still a little uncertain but we’re going with drying for the start of next week with temperatures a bit below average but still pleasant. Have questions?

Be safe and have a great Thursday!
