      Outdoor plans this weekend? You might be happier indoors tonight and tomorrow. Heavy rain and gusty wind will impact the area.

      Tonight, a strong low-pressure system and companion warm front will swing in from the south. An associated cold front will move through tomorrow afternoon, dropping temperatures through the day. Heavy downpours of rain this evening will continue much of the night. Steady rain will linger tomorrow morning, giving way to rain and snow showers by the afternoon. When it's all said and done, widespread rainfall amounts over 1" are likely. That being said, the extended duration of this rain will prevent flooding. To make matters worse, gusty winds will accompany the rain. Sustained winds of 10-20 miles per hour and gusts up to 30 miles per hour may affect your plans tonight and tomorrow. 

      Winds will weaken Sunday as the system exits the area. A few snow showers are possible on the back side of the cold front. Next week looks mild, calm and sunny! Thanksgiving should feature mostly sunny skies with highs in the upper-30s.

      Have a good weekend!
