We were supposed to get rain showers overnight last night, but that didn’t happen.  There will be a slight chance of patchy showers today but the true threat of rain will come overnight again tonight.

Will it actually happen? It seems the models have had a really difficult time figuring it out exactly.  We may only get some brisk winds from the system.

The threat of rain will end around 8AM Thursday and then another wave will come onshore Thursday afternoon and evening and deliver what looks like some unstable air like we had on Monday.

It will start to clear and warm up on Friday with temperatures peaking in the high twenties by Sunday.

Happy Wednesday!
