Scattered showers move through the state this morning


Some rain worked its way through the state on Thursday morning and there could be a chance for a little more in the afternoon.

Meteorologist Scot Haney called the scattered shower activity beneficial because the state is in a deficit.

"The rain should wrap up between 7 and 7:30 [a.m.]," Haney said. "Be careful driving because the roads are wet."

After the showers leave, the state will see partly sunny skies.

Eyewitness News viewers took some spectacular shots of the sunrise and a few rainbows. See them here.

However, the morning's rain may not be the only chance for precipitation.

"There's an opportunity for an isolated shower and possibly even a thunderstorm later [Thursday] afternoon." Haney said. "So you'll want to keep those umbrella's handy.

For the most part, most towns will remain dry.

Highs for the day will climb into the mid-to-upper 80s.

Thursday night is expected to be partly-to-mostly cloudy.

"There will be some patchy fog developing after midnight," Haney said.

Friday looks partly-to-mostly sunny.

"And it'll be downright hot as we get close to 90 degrees," Haney said.
