The rain is expected to diminish on Wednesday but is expected to increase again on Thursday which could cause additional flooding to the area.
By Thursday night the rain is expected to end. Friday is expected to be sunny with a high near 53 degrees. Evening temperatures are predicted to dip to 31 degrees.
