Bring a raincoat or an umbrella Wednesday, because a storm is blowing through from the Pacific Ocean on its way north to Canada.

“It’ll push some energy and moisture in our direction,” said meteorologist Logan Johnson at the National Weather Service in Seattle.

Rain and rain showers are forecast through Wednesday night, according to the forecast.

Bellingham and the Whatcom County lowlands should see about a quarter-inch of rain — which isn’t unusual for late summer.

High temperature will be around 70, with south wind to 10-15 mph.

Heavier rain is likely in the Cascades, Johnson said.

Expect showers overnight, lingering into Thursday morning, according to Tuesday morning’s forecast.
