Weather: High rain chances back in weekly forecast

Another rainy forecast will kick off our work week.

"We're going to start to see a return to higher rain chances," Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez said.

After a dry Friday and Saturday, the trend actually began to tick up on Sunday, with a few scattered thunderstorms popping up throughout the area. By Monday, the rain chance was 50 percent. Tuesday's rain chance is 60 percent, while Wednesday will drop back to 50 percent. A lower rain chance, between 30 and 40 percent, is predicted for the rest of the week.

Showers will start out near the coast in the morning, Marquez said, then work their way inland with the sea breeze. Slow-moving storms could mean higher rain fall totals in some areas.

Toward the end of the week, a southwest wind will develop, meaning scattered showers and thunderstorms will start later at night and continue through the early morning. They'll push inland in the late morning and afternoon, Marquez said.

Temperatures won't be too surprising, Marquez said. Monday started out with temperatures in the high 70s, and they were expected to climb into the low 80s by afternoon. That temperature trend is forecasted to continue throughout the week.

For some perspective, here's a list of predicted highs and lows from around the country this week:

Albuquerque, N.M: high 99 degrees, low 64 degrees

Chicago: high 92 degrees, low 62 degrees

New York: high 88 degrees, low 66 degrees

Washington: high 90 degrees, low 70 degrees

San Diego: high 77 degrees, low 67 degrees
