A few isolated severe thunderstorms are possible Thursday afternoon and into the evening hours as precipitation moves into the state, the National Weather Service said.
Weather service meteorologist John Robinson said chances for showers and thunderstorms are expected to increase after midnight.
Rain and thunderstorms are expected to affect most of the state Friday and Friday night, Robinson said. Rain totals are expected to range from 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inches, although some areas, especially in the southern part of the state, could see 2 to 3 inches.
Robinson said a few severe storms could occur Friday afternoon and evening, but a significant amount of severe weather is not expected.
