Dry out while you can. Meteorologist Scott Carroll with the National Weather Service’s Woodley Island outpost tells the Journal that, after a weekend dowsing, more rain is expected to move into the area tomorrow evening and early Thursday, with heavy rains expected Thursday night and through the day Friday.

The county got a heavy dose of rain over the weekend, culminating in yesterday’s storm, which dumped nearly 3 inches in McKinleyville, almost 4 in Arcata and 6.72 in Honeydew, creating a flurry of work for local road crews. The weekend’s storms brought Eureka’s year-to-date rainfall total to 28.37 inches, about 150 percent of normal.

Carroll said it’s too early to tell for sure, but it looks unlikely that this week’s storm will bring similar totals.
