Be aware of ponding in low-lying areas and remember that water will continue to runoff into streams and creeks long after the rain ends. The cold front that produced the rounds of heavy rain since yesterday is slowly pushing east.  

As the day goes on we will likely see some trailing showers but coverage should be decreasing through the afternoon into the evening.
