A new system moves in Thursday evening with more showers and thunderstorms and cooler air behind it. This system stalls over the region Friday, setting the stage for yet another potent low pressure system arriving Friday night into Saturday. This one is likely to deliver rounds of heavy rain and embedded thunder for the start of the weekend. Anywhere from 1-3" of rain is likely region-wide Friday night through Saturday. At this time, it appears the heaviest rain should move out by Saturday afternoon, although things remain cool and rather damp with patchy light rain lingering into Saturday evening. Showers finally move out Sunday, allowing for much nicer (and warmer) weather to return early next week.
