Forecasters say rain not ready to go away

Those eager to see the sun will probably have to wait until Tuesday, says the National Weather Service.

Emergency officials urge motorists to exercise caution in flood-prone areas as the rain continues for the next several days.

Emergency officials urge motorists to exercise caution in flood-prone areas as rainfall is expected to continue for the next several days.

In the meantime, forecasters urge area motorists to exercise caution: Because several inches of rain have fallen during the past 36 hours, low-lying areas are susceptible to flooding, particularly because more precipitation is expected.

Scattered showers are predicted on Friday, Sept. 30, with a high temperature near 63 and northeast winds around 14 mph. The chance of precipitation is 50 percent with new amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch.

The showers will continue overnight, mainly after 3 a.m., and the mercury will dip into the high 50s. The chance of precipitation is 60 percent with more accumulation between a tenth and quarter of an inch possible.

 On Saturday, Oct. 1, the pattern continues with showers likely, mainly before 2 p.m. and a high temperature of 71. Northeast winds will subside to 8 to 10 mph, but the chance of precipitation is expected to remain at 60 percent with new rainfall between a tenth and quarter of an inch during the day and more of the same on Saturday night, according to the NWS.

 The forecast for Sunday, Oct. 2, also includes a chance of showers. Mostly cloudy skies are expected with a high near 74 and winds diminishing to 6 mph. The chance of precipitation also declines, dipping to 40 percent during the day and 20 percent at night, when the temperature will likely drop a bit below 60.

 On Monday, Oct. 3, expect more of the same: a high near 73 and a 30 percent chance of rain. However, the sun is predicted to return on Tuesday, Oct. 4, with a high near 71, the NWS said.
