We probably won't see a repeat of yesterday's epic rainfall, but we're still in for a wet ride at times over the next several days.

It was a once-in-a-generation July coastal storm.

It's not a surefire rainout like yesterday. But we do have an increasing chance of showers as we get into the afternoon.

Sunday will not be as persistently rainy, but scattered showers and storms are likely, especially in the afternoon.

Some of today's rain should be heavy. It's just the start of a wet pattern.

Even so, it's likely to be very wet.

Like most good things, the weather over recent days couldn't last forever.
