Showers and thunderstorms producing heavy downpours will persist through Friday afternoon because of an approaching cold front, the weather service said. Additional rain over already-saturated ground will enhance the potential for flash flooding.

Flooding due to poor drainage in urban and rural areas may develop quickly. Road closures and detours in low-lying areas and near small streams may be necessary.
