Much of the rain will fall along and west of I-35 with the heaviest west of US 83. Rainfall totals are expected to be around two to five inches with isolated totals up to eight inches through the period.
Drought conditions across the west will help lower the chances of flooding rains, but any quick accumulations of heavy rain could lead to localized flooding.
