"It was a really wet month with a total of 9.44 inches of rain," AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Andy Mussoline said.

Temperatures will remain in the high 50s and low 60s throughout the week.
As the week moves forward, rain is set to return to the area Thursday and into the early weekend.
"The worst of it is going to be on Friday afternoon and into early Saturday morning," Mussoline said.
