Heavy rain will have a significant impact on the Friday morning rush with the potential for 2 to 4 inches by the time the system clears. A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for the entire area. Expect gradual clearing Friday afternoon with temperatures in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

A few showers are not out of the question both Saturday and Sunday, but should not pose much of a problem for any outdoor activities. Highs will be in the lower 70s.
