6:19 pm
some wet weather will come on wednesday. windy as well. and here's what we know so far with that system. models still not coming into line. i do think about half an inch to an inch of rainfall expected. and this is rain for the most part. gusty south, south winds 40 to the 50 mile per hour gusts expected a possible brief change over it a wintery mix, very early on thursday. we're thinking more overnight wednesday into thursday. so looking at the time line here, warm front push throughs overnight tuesday and into wednesday. we see rain. mostly with this event. then the cold front tries to make its way in overnight wednesday into thursday. and again, brief mix is a possibility. because look at how these that system. we are back with winter-like weather. mostly clear overnight tonight. a bit breezy bombing out in 30s for lows very mild night. mild morning a bit breezy tomorrow 54 to 60.
