Up to a quarter-inch of rain is expected on Tuesday, with a high of 36 degrees. Chance of precipitation is 90 percent with winds out of the east at 7 mph.

There's a 40 percent chance of rain on Wednesday before 3 p.m., with a low of 31 degrees. It will be mostly cloudy with winds out of the north at 3-7 mph.

It warms up on Thursday, with more sun than clouds and a high of 44 degrees.

Friday brings more clouds as temperatures drop to a high of 36 degrees. There's a 30 percent chance of showers.

Looking ahead to the weekend, the temperatures are expected to hover in the low 40s and bring a mix of sun and clouds.
