Through the weekend rainfall amounts could climb to around 1-2 inches. While it is not expected to be an all-out washout with continuous rain, torrential downpours will be expected from time to time which will lead to the flooding.

Then rain chance does not end on Sunday. It will remained unsettled heading into early next week with more showers expected. It looks to settle down for the latter half, but temperatures are expected to climb once again to possible hit 90 degrees.
