Rainfall rates of over one-half inch an hour are expected during the heaviest rain. The rain is expected to continue into early this evening before quickly diminishing, the weather service stated.
Rainfall totals by early this evening, including what has already occurred today, may reach over two inches in some locations.
The heavy rain is expected to result in ponding of water in poor drainage and low-lying areas. The heavy rain could lead to localized flooding as well, the weather service stated.
