Rain returns tonight…
Another strong storm system is approaching from the west for Friday. Showers and more t-storms will move through from time to time as southerly winds tap into more Gulf of Mexico moisture. Some rain amounts could top an inch or more. That will likely affect some of the flooding in the area.
