Models continue to pick up on a quick-hitting disturbance on Thursday before a larger system arrives for the end of the week and into the weekend. In total, this is three systems for the week that could bring rain to our area.

The track is still something we are watching as the uncertainty on how much rain is still present. We will keep an eye on this through the week.
