Update posted 5/8/08: Rain has returned after a week-plus dry spell, and it looks like by Monday we could be in for a soaking. Today’s system will be relatively quick, most likely out of here by Friday afternoon. There is a slight risk of severe thunderstorms. A much more intense system is slated for arrival later Sunday afternoon through Monday morning. That storm will bring a high potential for very heavy rainfall, as well as strong, possibly severe thunderstorms.
