FIRST ALERT: Downpours Expected to Cause Trouble on Evening Commute

Get ready for some heavy rain as clouds continue to roll in.

As Tropical Storm Erin heads north, its tropical moisture will be injected into a cold front that’s heading east. One to two inches of rain is possible with locally higher amounts of up to a whopping four inches.

It’s been dry lately, but some areas may see some flash flooding. The timing looks to be after the evening commute through early Thursday morning.

Saturday looks very nice as well, with temperatures dropping off into the 70s. Unfortunately, the weather begins to turn by Sunday afternoon. Showers are back Monday.
