The threat for severe storms will remain very low.  We'll likely see the heaviest rainfall between 4 am and 8 am.

We'll see the return of sunshine on Thursday and Friday with some cool temperatures. Morning lows will be around freezing with highs in the mid-50s Thursday afternoon. The temperatures on Friday will reach the lower 60s.
