HRRR shows a few showers before midnight, but the majority of the heavier rain holding off until the early AM hours tomorrow:

The rain will start tonight; however, we should be able to get any late afternoon/evening activities in before the rain comes. Majority of the rain will come after midnight since the line of showers is moving so slowly.

Thursday: Rain Throughout the Day –  Wake Up 60° High 73°

Tomorrow will be a fairly wet day. GFS and Euro show showers pretty consistently throughout the entire day.

The greatest chance for any minor storms will be in the mid-afternoon to evening time frame. We are not expecting any severe storms with this rainfall event, but an isolated thunderstorm could develop.

Winds could also begin to act up. Expecting winds to stay between 5-15 mph with the occasional gust up to 20 mph.

Some rain should linger into the evening through the early morning hours Friday.

NAM4 displays the rain late:
