Some rainy hours


A storm system will move through our region tonight into Friday, bringing some steady rain with it.

Rain should develop (west to east) this evening, and pick up in intensity late tonight through Friday morning's rush hour.

Steadier rain should begin to taper by midday, and the afternoon will feature many dry hours and even breaks in the clouds.  As of this writing, the dry period looks like it could last through the Friday night football games.

More showers will work back into the area Friday night into Saturday.  That rainfall will be a bit more scattered and light.

Computer model rainfall estimates have all come in near or over 1/2 inch.  Many of the models are producing 1"+ totals across northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan.
