The heaviest rain looks to fall right along the coast. Localized flooding will be possible in poor drainage areas.

Along with soggy conditions, it will also turn gusty with winds topping 25 mph at times.

Behind the front, highs on Wednesday will struggle to get back to the 70s with sunshine.

By Christmas, the mid-to-upper 70s return.
