The following is excerpted from the press conference this morning:

According to the latest weather forecasts, rain has cleared away from the west. There may be a few showers in the east and south today.

And a few heavier rainfalls may take place in the north, but it is not likely to cause any significant river flooding, beyond the usual flash flooding of creeks and streams.

Longer term is still up in the air—tomorrow and over the weekend. There is a risk of more rain over the west, and we will be monitoring that closely.
