A little stormy and very soggy. We're tracking a line of showers and thunderstorms rolling across our region through the evening hours. We're expecting a lot of rain, with a few thunderstorms in the mix. Some of us could receive more than two inches of rain tonight. And that's just the beginning.

Some of the wet weather may linger into very early on Wednesday. But mainly we'll see clouds through most of the day, with cooler weather. Expect highs only in the lower 60s.

The clouds stick around for Thursday. And we could see a few late-day showers as we warm into the mid 60s.

Guess what: more wet weather possible on Friday, with highs in the upper 60s.

And the soggy pattern continues for the weekend. Expect highs in the 70s on Saturday and Sunday, with a chance for rain both days. And it looks like our rain chances continue into Monday. We may -- emphasis on may -- dry out by this time next week.
