(WOWK) – After a wonderfully warm Wednesday, many people may be thinking about spring weather hanging around. However, the plan for the next week shows a return to normal and above normal temperatures and also the return of occasional heavy rain on the weekend.
A cold front moves through the area Wednesday night returning the temperatures to the 40s for Thursday. A front then comes back from the south into the region and stalls overhead for the weekend. A series of disturbances moves along that front with repetitive rounds of rain on Saturday and Sunday.
The heaviest round of rain appears to take place during from Sunday into early Monday.
The early estimates for rainfall now call for roughly 2 to 4 inches of rain depending on your location.
The forecast for large area rivers does not call for flooding as of Wednesday, but smaller streams and creeks could easily top their banks by the end of Sunday due to increased runoff rates.
