Maryland weather: Yes, more rain is on the way in the Baltimore area this week

It’s looking like another wet week in Baltimore.

The National Weather Service is forecasting temperatures in the 80s and at least a chance of rain every day this week, with the greatest likelihood of a downpour on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Monday should be mostly cloudy, with a high near 83 degrees and a chance of showers mainly after 2 p.m., the weather service said. Showers and thunderstorms could move through the area Monday night, with a 40 percent chance of precipitation and a low of 72 degrees.

The high Tuesday is expected to be 86 degrees, with a 60 percent chance of rain, according to the weather service. The forecast calls for a chance of showers before 11 a.m., then a chance of thunderstorms until 2 p.m., then a higher likelihood of showers and a possible thunderstorm in the late afternoon and evening.

Showers are likely and thunderstorms are possible Wednesday, the weather service says. The forecast calls for a 70 percent chance of precipitation and a high of 88 degrees.

Thursday, Friday and Saturday are each expected to be mostly cloudy with a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. The high temperatures will be 87, 84 and 85 degrees, respectively.

The forecast comes at the tail end of what has already been a record-breaking month for rain. Baltimore has surpassed a 129-year-old record for July rainfall and is on pace for its wettest summer since observations began in 1870.
