Tuesday is expected to be slightly warmer, with a high around 60 and a low of about 56. A 50 percent chance for rain is in the forecast for Tuesday and Tuesday night, according to the National Weather Service.

Similar conditions are expected Wednesday, with forecasters calling for a 60 percent chance of showers, a high around 65 and a low of about 42. The chance for rain drops to 30 percent Wednesday night.

The wet weather is expected to move out Thursday, which should bring a mostly sunny sky, a cooler high of about 55 degrees and a chilly low of 37.
