After a balmy Tuesday, weather forecasters have some advice for Southern Californians on Wednesday.

"Try to remember the fond memory of yesterday," meteorologist Andrew Rorke told the L.A. Times.

A low front was expected to settle in across most of the region Wednesday, bringing not only slightly cooler temperatures but also a chance of rain that should last through the weekend, the National Weather Service said.

In the tri-city region, there’s a 20% chance of rain on Thursday, but that will increase to 40% on Friday through the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.

High temperatures were expected to hover in the low 70s on Wednesday, Rorke said, and should fall to the upper 60s on Thursday and drop a few degrees more over the weekend.

"Today will be the warmest day," Rorke said.
