More rain -- possibly a lot of it -- is in the forecast again as an upper level energy pattern will bring more moisture from the Gulf of Mexico over the region today, according to the National Weather Service.

A 70 percent chance of rain is on tap today with showers possible throughout the day but more likely in the afternoon. All of the clouds are expected to hold temperatures to the mid-80s.
