The first of three weather systems move our way on Wednesday with a 70% chance of showers and highs near 60 degrees.

The first trough of low pressure moves away on Thursday and residual moisture from rainfall Wednesday will make patchy fog possible for the valleys Thursday morning. Otherwise, expect partly to mostly cloudy skies and dry with afternoon highs near 60 degrees.
