Afternoon Video Update: http://youtu.be/0nN1tDNifpA?hd=1 Remaining total precipitation guidance over the next 2 days is below...with heavy rainfall ramping up late tonight especially into Friday as the upper-level low pressure system stalls out: As mentioned in this morning's videos, we think it's not out of the questions for some snow to mix in with the rain after midnight Friday night into Saturday morning.
