    "The storm that's waiting for us is still toward the southwest, carrying a lot of rain and moving in our direction," said NBC4 forecaster Belen de Leon.

    More rain is expected to fall in the foothills and mountains, with 2 to 3 inches in the foothills and 1 to 2 inches in the mountains.

    Overall, the weekend system, caused by an atmospheric river, will be weak.
