Clouds will continue to build in advance of our next system, and a few showers are possible Thursday. The real rain event arrives overnight, with widespread showers and downpours lasting into early Friday. By Friday afternoon, however, the showers will become much more scattered in nature. That means there’s no need to cancel any Friday evening plans, but it won’t hurt to bring a poncho, just in case. Only isolated showers are left over by Saturday, and those will likely linger through only the first half of the day.
