The shower and thunderstorm threat will persist throughout the day. The best chance of seeing the heaviest rainfall will be Friday afternoon in thunderstorms. Friday morning will still bring moderate to heavy rains at times, however, once the sun rises and some day time heating takes place afternoon thunderstorms will begin to form.
The afternoon thunderstorms will be spotty but in places that do receive a thunderstorm heavy rain will be expected.
The area average will probably run near 3/4 of an inch. In the southwesterly flow in advance of the front Friday, we could see a few breaks of sunshine as well helping to warm us back into the lower 80s which will be rather oppressive when combined with the dewpoints in the lower 70s……..muggy!
