Rainfall amounts of up to 60mm are possible between Wednesday and Thursday evening.  We haven’t seen this strong a rain event since early December.  Below is the 24hr chart.

The rain will begin around 10PM tonight and intensify overnight with the heaviest rain coming between 1-4AM.  It will rain all through Thursday and into Friday morning and should finally let up after about 10AM Friday.

There will be lingering showers most of Friday before it finally dries out overnight.  Saturday looks pretty good right now and Sunday only looks like a few patchy showers.

Have a happy Hump day! 🙂
