Rain to end this afternoon, sun expected through Friday

Keep those windshield wipers on — this rain is going to stick around for a few more hours.

“We’re looking for it coming to an end somewhere between 1 and 2 p.m.,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Alan Dunham. “But by the evening commute you might see some breaks of sunshine.”

The weather service issued a warning that widespread rain this morning could lead to some urban flooding, though rivers should be okay.

“There might be some poor drainage flooding on roadways, but as far as rivers, they should stay in their banks,” Dunham said.
