Flooding conditions are possible due to the leaves and debris that has fallen from trees now that autumn is here. That debris had the potential to clog up storm drains and sewers, causing the flooding.
The rain is expected to be gone by early Saturday morning. But temperatures are expected to drop during the overnight hours. Overnight lows could dip into the upper-30s.
Curren says that the weekend is shaping up to have nice and mild weather. Mostly sunny skies are expected on Saturday and Sunday with temperatures in the low-60s.
