    "We're a family business so any little thing makes a difference, and if my truck were to get stuck here I'd have a bunch of deliveries not being able to go out, and yeah it's just not good all around for everybody," delivery driver Chris Zumarraga said.

    Friday's isolated showers won't agitate the flooding concerns and skies will clear later in the day. Highs will reach 84.
