Clouds are hanging tough ahead of a more potent weathermaker for Friday with the potential for very heavy rain. This could produce amounts of 2-4" of rain before ending Saturday along with gusty winds. Some minor flooding is possible along small streams, creeks and rivers. Expect tumbling temperatures behind this system as the weekend begins.

Cold, arctic air filters into our region Saturday afternoon and evening as the heavy rain pulls away. An upper air disturbance could bring us a chance at light rain and snow showers Christmas Eve (Sunday), with flurries possible into Christmas morning (Monday). This will not be a major winter storm so, no accumulation or travel troubles are expected.
