It will bring heavy rain starting after dark tonight and lasting through Saturday morning. We could also see some strong to severe thunderstorms overnight.

There will be a risk for strong to severe thunderstorms overnight and early Saturday with damaging straight-line wind the primary threat. But there could be a few tornadoes possible.
