Several days of rain could be in the forecast, so if you're a gardening kind of person, it's time to get those cool-season plants in the ground.
The National Weather Service is forecasting a slight chance of rain Friday night into early Saturday and then successive chances for rain from Sunday through Wednesday.
Bryon Miller, meteorologist for the National Weather Service, said the likelihood of rain Friday night isn't very high at this point, although the system coming through could spin up a quick storm.
Early next week, however, the chance for rain improves.
"We're fairly confident we're going to have at least some light rain Sunday through Wednesday," he said. "It could be more than light rain, but I wouldn't be willing to say that right now,"
As the weekend draws near, the forecast will become clearer.
