Much of the OPPD service territory will see more than two inches of rain starting today and lasting through Thursday, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).
Rain could begin Monday afternoon, but is more likely tonight. Taylor Nicolaisen, a meteorologist with the NWS in Valley, said rain could stick around until Tuesday night and give way, temporarily, to sunny skies Wednesday. He said rain would be back again mid-day Thursday and then scattered rain fall through the weekend.
But with cooler temperatures now in the area, the threat of bad thunderstorms is pretty minimal, Nicolaisen said. Whenever storms strike, there is the chance for power outages.
