Rainfall totals range between two to four inches with locally higher amounts. Therefore, flooding is possible along river and creek basins as well as roads that accumulate water easily.

If you come across a roadway completely submerged in water, turn around and take an alternative route.

Temperatures drop from the 50s to the 30s Saturday with cloudy, drizzly weather. Also, several snow flurries are possible to begin the weekend. A light accumulation of snow is possible for the plateau.

As new details come in, the News 2 Weather Authority will post the latest information.
