Desperately needed rain has finally made its way here and Accu-Weather's Joe Lundberg says we could end up getting quite a bit. "We're going to get a couple showers and thunderstorms. Any one of these could produce downpours. This is the much-needed rain that we have been looking for, begging for, praying for, for the last several weeks," Lundberg says. By the time we dry out, Lundberg thinks we could end up picking up more than an inch of rain.
