By Saturday, the wind changes direction to a southerly breeze, which warms things up and the precipitation will change to all rain over the next several rounds which will be spread out across the weekend.

Over the course of the entire weekend it looks like we will see significant amounts of rainfall especially in southern West Virginia and southeastern Kentucky. Weather models continually show 2 to 3 inches of rain in this area which could cause localized flooding on area streams or creeks as well as poor drainage areas.
