The sunshine was nice while it lasted, but unfortunately it isn’t going to last very long.

The National Weather Service is expecting the rain to move back into the area this week, but this time it won’t last nearly as long. Clouds should move in Tuesday evening, and will make way for showers and thunderstorms on Wednesday. Most of the area is expected to see rain, with a few claps of thunder here and there. No severe weather is expected.

After the rain on Wednesday, the clouds should break once again on Thursday, and should allow sunshine to prevail for the rest of the week.

Along with the rain, the temperatures are expected to the low 60s, and will warm back up towards the weekend, near the 70-degree mark.

Check back Friday for your weekend forecast.
