could contain the following: Heavy rain
(1.00"-2.00" with heavier downpours)
Gusty wind, Hail, Isolated tornadoes.
Most storms will move along rather
quickly, but heavy rain could cause
ponding of water on roads. If a storm


would slow down and "train" over the
same area, flooding may be realized.
Use caution at night and NEVER cross a
flooded roadway. Lows are forecast near
60. Friday will start cloudy with
early showers, then clearing as the day
progresses. Temperatures will stay mild
in the mid 70s. Westerly winds may gust
around 25mph as low pressure tracks off
the coast. Saturday features partly
sunny skies and the slightest chance of
a shower. Highs are forecast in the
upper 60s and lower 70s. Another round
of showers will be possible on Mother's
Day Sunday. Once again, thunderstorms
with heavy rain will be possible,
especially late. Stay tuned for the
