Tracking showers that stick around for most of Wednesday

TODAY: Wednesday is going to be wet areawide, as rain showers are currently moving into the region, and won't leave until this afternoon. It will rain off and on for most of the day, with light to moderate rainfall coming over an extended period. This will blanket the area with rain totals near a half an inch. Rainfall will end from west to east over a timeframe from roughly 1 p.m. in the west to 5 p.m. in the east. Generally, those south of I-70 will see the best rainfall totals, and have a better chance at hearing some thunder. No severe weather is expected today. Temperatures will struggle to climb into the mid-40s, and may get stuck near 40 for many.

TONIGHT: Dry weather sets in for the overnight, and skies may even briefly clear before low clouds from the north move back in. Temperatures will fall into the mid-to-upper 30s by sunrise.

EXTENDED: Not much of a sunrise is anticipated early Thursday, as low clouds wrapping around the low that moves through today will be present at daybreak. These will bring the potential for some sprinkles, drizzle, and even flurries given the temperatures. No accumulation, and likewise no travel impacts are expected as temperatures are likely to remain above freezing. With that said, northwest wind and cooler air influence will be a feature in Thursday's forecast, keeping temperatures near 40 at best. This will feel cold compared to temps as of late, but this will be somewhat of a reality check as this is about what we average this time of the year. Temperatures will rebound slightly on Friday, and we'll see more sun. Still, low-to-mid 40s will carry us through the weekend, where we'll encounter our next chance for precipitation. This next system is starting to take shape, and data is concluding that we should see our best chances for precipitation late Saturday into early Sunday. Temperatures will somewhat borderline regarding the freezing mark, so wintry weather will be a possibility; a possibility we'll have to monitor as we get closer to the weekend.
