In addition to the flood watch for the area, Jones said to pay attention to the wet ground, which will be saturated with rain and the past weeks melting snow.
“There won’t be any freezing. But with big gusts of wind be sure to be on the lookout for falling trees which could cause possible power outages Friday,” Jones said.
This weekend the area will experience a drop in temperature quickly, from 61 to upper 20’s, starting Friday.
“Back to reality,” Jones said. “We could even see some flying snowflakes on Friday afternoon, but nothing too crazy.”
Saturday will be look dry and sunny, but remain chilly. Sunday will bring temperatures in the upper 30’s as well as a mix of rain and snow.
