This concludes the washout weekend forecast for the region. Congratulations to the fall class of 2023 for all your achievements. Drive safely this weekend with incoming rain as roads can be slick along with ponding in low spots. Do not let the rain take away your weekend fun. It is the perfect weather for hot chocolate and soup as it is moving into the usual temperature range for this month. Enjoy your weekend and remember, Stay classy WABBLES. Until next time.
