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.
