A few raindrops across the Valley very early this morning but it will be short lived before significant rain moves in Thursday night into Friday morning.
Wednesday will bring mostly cloudy skies and calm conditions. Temperatures will warm up into the mid-70s Wednesday and Thursday, a bit cooler than the 79 degrees the Valley experienced on Tuesday.
A cut-off low pressure system off the coast of California will help push a lot of moisture into the Valley by Friday. More than likely rain showers will start to develop in the Valley by Thursday night.
Rain will continue throughout the day on Friday. Totals should be impressive - at least a half of inch before the day is over. A few isolated thunderstorms could pop up by the afternoon. Wherever these storms develop, rain totals could be close to an inch.
This wet weather event will not be a one-day wonder. There will be more rain showers on Saturday and Sunday. An additional inch of rain could fall over the weekend.
The low pressure system will also bring in cooler air. Temperatures will stay only in the 60s on Friday and Saturday.
Highs on Sunday only rising into the mid-60s. Overnight lows this weekend will be dropping into the low to mid-50s with some outlying areas experiencing temperatures in the 40s.
Average highs this time of year is around 74 degrees.
It will stay cool for the beginning of the holiday week with highs in the 60s on Monday. There will be clearing skies as Thanksgiving approaches on Thursday.
