Wet weather returned to Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia Monday night and Tuesday will feature much of the same. Periods of rain will continue to stream northward from the Carolinas throughout the day. Rainfall amounts will generally be light, but a few areas from Philadelphia to Baltimore and on eastward to the coast could pick up nearly a half-inch of rain. Regardless of the exact amounts the day will remain overcast with occasional drizzle, even in New York where not much rainfall is expected. Temperatures will not rise much from their current readings.

Not only will Tuesday feature unpleasant weather, well most would consider it unpleasant, but Wednesday's outlook is rather bleak as well. Thursday should see conditions improve, however, with warming temperatures.
