An approaching storm system could bring 1-2" of rain for much of the Tri-Counties, with as much as 4" in the mountains.

What’s shaping up to be a major storm system is headed to the Tri-Counties.

KCLU News has been mentioning it all week, but meteorologists say it looks like it will bring more significant rainfall than originally predicted. It will be clear and warmer through most of the weekend, but the storm will start to move into the region late Sunday.

We could see some rainfall Sunday night into Monday, but it now looks like the storm will hit in two waves, with the heaviest rainfall coming Monday into Tuesday.

Coastal and inland areas could see one to two inches of rain, with up to four inches in some of our mountains. No issues are predicted for brush fire burn zones. Clearing is expected Tuesday.
