Excellent, good luck on your ride!
BTW, I hate to tell you, on a long run like that you will certainly encounter rain somewhere. Cannot avoid it! I would not worry about the Wednesday forecast, just get the rain gear out and go!
It seems like you are going to be doing a blitz run as well, allowing also 10 days for the ride - you will have to "press on regardless", to borrow the rallying motto. No weather considerations, then...
