    On Wednesday, one of these system will trek close enough to bring rain across our area. Right now, expecting the bulk of the heavier rain to fall across central and northern locales.

    High temperatures may reach to near 50 degrees on Wednesday across the south, remaining in the mid to upper 30s north. Another system slides in for Thursday bringing more rain to the region.
