**TAKE AN UMBRELLA & JACKET**
More rain is coming in what has already been a wet October and a wet 2009. Once the rain arrives during the late morning/early afternoon hours, expect it to stick with us throughout the day and into the evening. Temperatures start out on the cool side just before daybreak (at 50°) and will only warm to around 58° by this afternoon. Expect more rain tonight with a low of 51°. Sunshine returns for Wednesday and Thursday with highs of 67° and 71° respectively. Rain, with possibly strong to severe storms, returns on Friday. We'll have more updates on that system as we get closer to the end of the week. Enjoy your day!
