Highs tomorrow in the middle 50s with steady rain showers through the day as well as some hefty wind gusts near 25mph. Grab the rain jacket and the umbrella, you'll need it all day!
Steady showers continue throughout Thursday and night and become more scattered on Friday. Rain totals could be anywhere from 2-2.5 inches by Friday. Wind gusts continue to increase throughout Thursday and up near 35 by 1AM on Friday.
