Weather forecast: Beautiful autumn day today, active weather awaits

A wave of low pressure will scoot to our north Wednesday, dragging a front with it. We’ll see a line of heavy rain and a few rumbles of thunder Wednesday morning with the front. Gusty winds will accompany these downpours. Once the front clear, we’re far from done. Wraparound moisture will result in a continued threat for showers, transitioning to lake effect rain Wednesday night and Thursday as the colder air spills in. Breezy conditions will accompany the showers, and with highs Thursday struggling to get beyond 50 it won’t be the prettiest of days.
