The late Wednesday rain machine will fire up late Wednesday and make its way up the East Coast through Friday, potentially complicating travel leading up to the Easter holiday.

Here is what you can expect from the rain showers over the next few days across this part of the eastern U.S.

Cold Front Will Merge with Mass of Moisture Along East Coast

An approaching cold front is slowing to a crawl along the Eastern Seaboard, giving it time to merge with a storm that has been brewing in the southern part of the country.

Together, these elements are forecast to continue to move to the north up the coast. While the storm is not expected to push far inland, it will bring a significant amount of rain to the coastal areas. The exact track of the storm will determine how far inland the moisture moves in the coming days.

The cool front is part of the same winter storm that unleashed heavy snow and blizzard conditions across the northern Plains and the Upper Midwest at the beginning of the week. This front has been moving to the east over the last few days on a crash course to meet up with the moisture that is associated with the southern storms.
