Back to the forecast now, expect periods of showers through the overnight hours.

Flooding is, of course, our main threat overnight.

Watch for areas of standing water tonight if you have to be out and about for any reason.

Never drive around a barricade or over a flooded roadway.

The rain will wind down after midnight.

Tomorrow will be a much quieter day.

Clouds will hang around for most of the day but highs will top out in the low 70s.
