      Get ready for a Wednesday washout! While tomorrow morning will only feature scattered showers, the afternoon will deliver steady downpours that could dump rainfall totals in excess of an inch for the entire viewing area. 

      Scattered showers tonight will persist through tomorrow morning. Isolated thunderstorms may also impact areas, but severe weather is unlikely. Tomorrow afternoon, heavy downpours will roll through as a strong low pressure system tracks in. By the time showers taper off Thursday morning, most locations will have over an inch of rain on the ground.

      Though Friday will bring some clearing, more showers and storms are likely for the weekend.
