Matt's Forecast: Downpours tonight; Second round on Thursday

(WITN) -- Monday & Tuesday
Clouds will stick with us through the start of the week. Rain will slowly roll over the East starting this afternoon. Despite the clouds and rain, temperatures should still warm up to the low 60s.

Rain will continue to move northeast over the region as we head into the early hours of Tuesday. The downpours will likely bring rain totals of 1-2" to much of the area before the rain starts to clear out during the mid/late morning hours. A few strong thunderstorms will be possible from 3am through 8am with isolated wind gusts over 50 mph.

Wednesday & Thursday
The low pressure system that will be responsible for Tuesday's rain will depart Tuesday night leaving us mostly cloudy and chilly on Wednesday with highs in the upper 40s. Yet another coastal storm will move through the area on Thursday with another round of heavy rain likely. Another 1-2 inches or rain will be possible with dry and chilly air returning on Friday and persisting through the weekend.
