Breaks in the rain during the afternoon as temperatures start to climb into the 40s. Winds will increase especially into the evening. The highest temperatures will not occur until after sundown where lower 50s are definitely possible.

The main line of rain and storms moves through mid to late evening. Winds could gust to 40-50 mph with a slight chance for strong storms.

Rainfall will be close to 1/2" or more in spots over the next 24 hours!
Snow water content is greater than 3 inches in many areas.

River levels will start to climb fast overnight tonight and early Friday. Here are the early Thursday morning river level forecasts. ALL will be well above flood stage by midday Friday!
