Widespread rain, and maybe a rumble of thunder, is then likely beginning Wednesday evening and lasting through the night. Some places could see around 0.50" of rainfall. This rain will come to an end by Thursday morning. The rest of the day we will be cloudy and it will be much cooler with highs in the mid 40s.
