"Definitely welcomed rain for the region. We've really needed it," said FOX 35 Meteorologist Brook Garner. "The bottom line is we're going to rinse and repeat the next few days because we've got hot weather on the way with the high around the 90s the next couple of days."
Garner said a cold front arrives this weekend sparking big changes in temperatures with highs only reaching into the 60s on Sunday with lows in the 40s.
