A steady rain has been falling for much of the morning in St. Joseph and this rain is expected to continue up until around lunchtime and then during the afternoon the rain will be more scattered. If you have any plans Sunday, pack the rain gear because we will be dodging showers all day long. Temperatures will get into the low to mid 70s.
