WEDNESDAY: Clouds will continue to clear out through the day, with plenty of sunshine expected into the afternoon hours. However, it will be a few degrees cooler than Tuesday, as afternoon highs only top out in the mid to upper 40s. The breezy conditions stick around Wednesday, with winds out of the west up to 13 mph.
TONIGHT: Clouds will increase again tonight ahead of more rain chances by tomorrow morning. A few spotty showers can’t be ruled out tonight, but the better chance of rain comes Friday. Temperatures will remain above freezing through the night with a low of 35 degrees.Winds will shift out of the southeast up to 8 mph.
EXTENDED: Another system is set to impact us as we head into Thursday, which will bring a better chance of rain. Cold rain will spread into the region from the southwest for the late morning and early afternoon. The rain stays with us throughout most of Thursday, with heavy rain possible near I-44. This could lead to favorable flooding areas to see a minimal risk of flooding. With the rain expected to linger into Friday, a brief shot of wintry mix is possible as cooler air begins to filter in, but little to no impacts are expected. We dry out as we head into the weekend, with afternoon highs in the mid to upper 40s and partly cloudy skies. Stay with ABC 17 News as we continue to fine tune our tracks and forecasts.
