It’s going to be a cold, wet week ahead as the first of two storm fronts blows into the region on Wednesday.

Forecasters say rain is likely on Wednesday, with a continued chance of rain through Thursday before breaking up into mostly cloudy conditions, according to the National Weather Service.

Daytime temperatures, meanwhile, will likely remain in the low-60s.

A brief respite from rainy conditions on Friday will give way to second storm system on Saturday, which will bring a strong chance of rain through Monday, according to the weather service.
