Better get used to the rain -- it is going to be around a while. After going more than a month with scant precipitation, the wet stuff is expected to fall for the next few days -- though likely not as heavily as Monday afternoon.
The National Weather Service is expecting cloudy skies and a 20 percent chance of rain today as a cold front moves through the region. The likelihood of rain bumps up to 50 percent tonight.
