So we’ll have a 40% coverage in the mid-afternoon, with a high of 88 degrees, then a 60% coverage in the evening. This means not everyone gets the rain you may want, with a broken line of rain and storms from this cold front. Where it rains, it brings about a quarter to half an inch, with isolated higher amounts.
