Showers and thunderstorms dropped .6 inches of rain and a bit of hail in Madera on Friday as of 5:40 p.m. weather officials reported.

More showers and isolated thunderstorms were expected to hit Friday night but today should be the beginning of a stretch of dry weather, said Kevin Durfee, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Hanford.

“Saturday and the next several days will bring dry weather,” he said. “It will be much cooler than normal [Saturday] but then we will be going through a warming trend.”

From Tuesday through Friday evening, 1.3 inches of rain fell in Madera, bringing the seasonal rain total since July 1, 2011, to 7.7 inches, Durfee said.
