I am back. I was a little under the weather yesterday, no pun intended. We do have something to talk about and we will. I will start breaking the whole thing down after the morning suite of models comes out. All moisture is good moisture!

There are still some model differences as to where the heaviest precip will accumulate. There is very good agreement, however, that the precipitation will move into the general area between 2 pm and 6 pm on Saturday and wrap up late Sunday. I will be updating this afternoon, then a couple times on Saturday and Sunday.
