Rain and storms are expected to impact the morning commute on Friday. Be prepared to allow extra time to reach your destination and slow down as roads will be wet and possibly have ponding of water in poor drainage areas. Isolated locations could have minor flooding for a time from 6 AM to Noon on Friday. There is also a chance of strong storms from roughly Highway 10 south. The main threats are torrential downpours, gusty winds, and perhaps small hail. Keep in mind, that if the ground is saturated prior to gusty winds with strong storms, trees could more easily be uprooted. The wet weather will exit by early to mid-afternoon Friday, with considerable cloudiness and humid conditions the rest of the day. Highs on Friday are in the upper 60s to around 70.
