Eureka area forecast: Drizzle today, rain by Friday

There is a slight chance of drizzle late today into Thursday morning, National Weather Service meteorologist Alex Dodd said today. The light precipitation may continue through Friday.

"It will probably amount to all of a tenth of an inch around the Eureka area," Dodd said.

This weekend, moderate to heavy rainfall is still forecast to begin late Friday night or early Saturday morning and continue through the weekend.

"There may be some breaks, but it definitely looks like a good soaking rainfall for a good portion of the entire area," Dodd said.
