Don’t put away your raincoats yet, and maybe brace yourself for the sight of some spring snow.

After Tuesday’s heavy rainfall and flooding, you may be hoping for a few dry days. That’s not what Mother Nature has in store.

According to the NWS, there’s a slight chance of rain before 3 p.m. Wednesday and a 60% chance of more showers and thunderstorms between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.

Rain will continue overnight with snow possible after 5 a.m. as the temperature drops Thursday morning. NWS expects little to no snow accumulation.

Rain and snow showers will continue Thursday morning until around noon, when it’ll turn back to just rain. There seems to be no avoiding it, either; the NWS says there’s a 100% chance of precipitation on Thursday.

Here’s what the rest of the week’s weather looks like.
