By Monday morning 3 to 5 inches of rain will be possible with some spots a little higher. The rain totals will build, but round after round will be able to add up by the end of the weekend.
“That much rain could lead to some serious issues in flood-prone areas,” he said.
There also are numerous festivals scheduled over the weekend including Springboro's Oktoberfest, Beavercreek's Popcorn Festival and the Dayton Greek Festival that could all be affected by this weekend’s rain.
"It will probably be a good idea to keep a close eye on the WHIO Weather App over the weekend to stay ahead of the rain and monitor for any potential warnings," Elwell said. Despite the heavy rain threat, severe storms are not expected.
