SATURDAY: Mostly cloudy with areas of locally heavy rain. One or two arcing rain bands east of Delta’s center of circulation will lead to most of the active weather in our region.  Between 1-4″ may fall and that could lead to some flooding issues.  Sustained winds between 15-25 mph with gusts 30-40+ or higher may occur leading to some scattered power outages and downed trees.  A few isolated tornadoes also can’t be ruled out at any time from about sunrise to about sunset.  The highest odds of them may occur during the afternoon hours during peak heating. Temperatures hold steady in the 70s all day long.
