    The remnants of Tropical Depression Bill are arriving tonight, and some of the storms could be severe, according to the National Weather Service,

    A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect until 1:00 a.m. Sunday.

    Forecasters expect widespread heavy rain tonight — between one and two inches, with up to three inches locally — which could cause flooding along streams and creeks.

    Precipitation might taper off between the late morning and early afternoon hours tomorrow. Scattered showers and thunderstorms could fire during the mid to late afternoon hours as a cold front approaches. 

    Conditions will then improve by tomorrow evening.
