Wednesday evening is bringing rain, chilly temperatures and gusty breezes, the National Weather Service said.

Light showers were expected to turn to heavier rain overnight and into Thursday, the weather service said, along with a low in the high 30s.

 The wind will make it feel even colder, with gusts of up to 30 mph overnight.

Rain is forecast to continue Thursday and there might even be a thunderstorm around earlier in the day. The wind will still be strong, with gusts approaching 30 mph. Up to an inch of rain is expected, the weather service said and the high will be around 50 degrees. 

The rain should clear overnight Thursday into Friday and temperatures will be on the rise with a low of just 49 at night, rising to 57 during Friday afternoon when the sun emerges, forecasters said.

There is a 30% chance of showers Saturday afternoon and into the evening, but otherwise the day should otherwise be partly sunny with highs in the mid-50s, the weather service said.

Sunday should also be sunny, but cooler, with highs around 50 degrees expected, the weather service said. The sunshine will persist Monday, with the high dropping to about 38, and Tuesday, when the high will be about 44.
