Rain, scattered thunderstorms expected Friday through Monday

Douglas County is expected to have numerous rainy days ahead, according to the National Weather Service.

Douglas County will likely see a slow progression of rainfall through Monday, Brandon Drake, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in Topeka, told the Journal-World. He said Douglas County might expect between 2 and 3 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.

Drake said flash flooding was not expected, but the constant nature of the expected rain could be a problem for areas that lack good drainage. Douglas County is also expected to receive some scattered thunderstorms from Friday through Monday. The county is under a hazardous weather outlook from Thursday through Wednesday.
