Several systems bringing chance of showers starting as early as Wednesday

 We could be getting into a wet weather pattern by midweek, with a chance of showers starting as early as Wednesday and continuing right on through the weekend.

The southern half of the San Joaquin Valley may escape the heaviest rain, but there is at least slight chance of showers for several days.

After mostly clear, hazy days with some patchy fog, the first chance of rain comes on Wednesday when there is a 50 percent chance of showers in Taft.

That falls off to a 20 percent chance in the evening.

After a break Thursday, there is another chance of showers late Thursday night continuing through Friday night.

After another another break Saturday, more rain is expected to come Saturday night and Sunday.
