The rain chances will be slightly better for the last day of the workweek. The forecast models are still having a hard time figuring out where most or the rain will be. 

Right now, we are going for rainfall amounts of less than 0.5” for the Midlands, but there will be a better chance for rain in the southern half of the state.
