The rain will cool temperatures into the mid-70s. Expect up to a half inch of rain by Friday morning. A few scattered showers will continue through Friday and Saturday and the cooldown will continue as well. Expect highs in the mid-60s Friday and in the mid-50s Saturday, making Saturday the coolest day in five months.

Wednesday will be a windy, warm day with clouds increasing during the afternoon.

Showers and storms will develop Thursday.
