A Pacific storm system will increase not only rain chances, but also thunderstorm chances especially in our afternoon hours. Our best chance for thunderstorms will happen between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Windy conditions are also expected to pick up, especially when storms pick up. Winds wil come from the West at 20-25 mph in the afternoon.

Thursday will continue to be below normal and well as breezy.

Rain chances will stay in the forecast for almost all of the next 9 days because of two other storm systems that wil come into the forecast. The next one coming into our area on Friday and the third one coming on Sunday.
