Rain chances go up for tonight and into Saturday morning when widespread scattered showers and thunderstorms move into the Valley. Winds could gust as high as 20 to 40 mph with possible lightning. Rain totals could be between 1 to 2 inches. The heaviest rainfall looks to move in from 5 AM to Noon, so be careful travelling on the roadways during this time as heavy rain could cause slick roadways.

Next chance of rain moves in by Wednesday evening into Thursday.
