Showers and an occasional rumble of thunder may continue to create weather-related delays to outdoor activities later this week.

Rainfall so far this month is already outpacing the May average and the additional rain could send the monthly total close to or past the monthly average a week before it ends.

Humidity levels will spike on Wednesday as showers and thunderstorms become plentiful.

Temperatures on Thursday will climb into the upper 70s. Cooler air will arrive on Friday with highs around 70 degrees.
