Major storm out west

Repeated storms out in the western US have continued to produce heavy rain and snow, along with strong winds and mudslides.  Different chunks of energy have travelled across the country, causing tornadoes in the southern US.

The main part of this storm will move through the area Sunday.  We will not see violent weather, but we will receive steady rainfall during the day.  Accumulations of 1/2 to 3/4" of rainfall are possible by Sunday night.

We will also see much warmer temperatures...well into the 40s Sunday.  The rain and warmer temps combined may cause some issues on area rivers via ice jams.
