Temperatures will be above-average, possibly hitting 70 degrees for the first time this year on Tuesday.

There is a 50 percent chance of rain after midnight on Tuesday, when lows will be in the upper 40s. There is about a 40 percent chance of rain Tuesday through Friday.

Meteorologist Benjamin Sipprell attributed the forecast to “a frontal boundary (that) will become stagnant,” causing “waves of wet weather that will make things kind of dreary.”

He said due to the rain and higher humidity there is a “lesser chance of enhanced fire weather danger.”

The forecast for this week could easily change, he said, depending on the movement of the frontal boundary.

“If the front goes north of us it will be warmer and if it goes south of us it will be cooler,” he said.
