STILL A FEAST OR FAMINE...
Rain began falling Saturday night and will continue into Sunday. Some spots have gotten a decent amount of rain and others haven't seen much at all. Showers and storms may fill in more overnight into early Sunday morning:
There have already been Flash Flood Warnings in spots, especially north of Highway 20 where grounds are saturated. Some rain will continue through 2-4 pm on Sunday:

Hopefully the rain this weekend falls in the right places!
