"It should remain dry today and tonight and then tomorrow there is a chance for showers as a weak area of low pressure moves toward," said meteorologist Joe Pollina, who said "anytime after 6 a.m., rain moves eastward as the day progresses, not a lot of rain, it should a few hundredths of an inch and should not impact the morning commute Monday".

This week, every day but Wednesday there is a chance of showers, he said.

"It looks pretty unsettled. We have a system to our west that slowly approaches the region, and while it won't be total washout, there is a chance of rain Monday, a slight chance on Tuesday for a passing shower or thunderstorm . . . and on Thursday and Friday, another slight chance of passing showers."

After Sunday, temperatures this week will be cooler, in the lower 70s Monday and then staying in the middle to upper 70s for the most part, which is seasonable for this time of year, Pollina said.
