Sunny Monday to be replaced by soaking rain this week

The sun is out today, but rain clouds aren’t too far over the horizon.

“We’ll see rain Tuesday night, and it’s going to continue as steady rain into Wednesday night before tapering off to showers on Thursday,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Charlie Foley. “During that whole period we’re looking at the possibility of a 1-to-3 inches of a good, soaking rain.”

The month of April is ending with about a half-inch less than average for this time of year.

“We’ve had about 2.89 inches, and normally we would expect 3.04 inches, so we actually have a deficit,” Foley said.

Sunny skies appeared this morning, though they should gradually become cloudier into the afternoon. High temperatures should climb to a seasonable 58 degrees. Heavier clouds will appear in the evening as low temperatures sink to 44 degrees.

Tuesday will be similar but cooler, with cloudy skies throughout the day and high temperatures in the upper 40s. Temperatures should only drop into the mid-40s overnight.

Rain could start as early as 2 a.m. and continue into Wednesday morning. Skies should be cloudy, with high temperatures near 45 degrees. Rain showers will continue into the evening as low temperatures sink into the lower 40s.

Continuing rain showers should peter out by 2 p.m. Thursday, with high temperatures climbing to an unseasonably warm 66 degrees. Some light rain could fall in the evening as temperatures drop into the lower 50s.

The sun should return Friday, with clear skies and highs in the mid-60s. Some clouds could arrive in the evening as temperatures fall to 49 degrees.
