1- We are downgraded from marginal to general BUT depending on how the approaching mess comes together we still may see some rainfall. We’ll have to keep an eye out on this. As stated yesterday, no need for panic!
2- Also as I stated yesterday, the forecast did change and if you plan on traveling east or southeast, especially later tonight and early Saturday, keep a close eye on the weather along your route and destination. It could get a bit tense.
