Wednesday will start off cloudy and dry, but a stream of moisture is headed our way.

Rain should hold off for most of the day — but by the early evening hours steady rain will beginning to move in from the south. 

Expect heavy rain throughout the evening and overnight hours, with gusty winds as well.

The system will start off bringing snow to the local mountains, but as warmer air is transported into the South Coast, snow levels will rise to above 1,800 meters by the end of the day.

Lingering showers will stick around for Thursday and Friday before another storm moves in Friday night.
