Soaking rains likely Fri & Sat

(KNOE 8 Weather) - Sunshine is in the cards for today as strong high pressure to our northwest will keep the clouds away. At the same token, that same high-pressure system is also the reason why it's colder this morning as it's directing our wind from the north.

Dry weather will persist through Thursday.

Friday the cloud cover will quickly return as our next weather system develops.

It appears rain will move in from west to east, beginning around the evening hours Friday, and persisting through the entire day on Saturday.

Preliminary estimates show 1-3" of rain is likely through that 36 hour period.
