The dry end to the weekend in Washington, D.C., will not persist for the rest of this week.

Hopefully those who enjoy spending time outdoors took advantage of Sunday's weather.

Some rain will spread back across the nation's capital Monday afternoon through Tuesday, putting a damper on outdoor activities.

Tuesday will be the cooler of these two days with temperatures set to be held to the 50s. Brisk winds will create even lower AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.

Heavier periods of rain and thunderstorms will follow for Tuesday night and Wednesday, heightening concerns for flash flooding.

The stage may also be set for some of the thunderstorms to turn severe on Wednesday if enough sunshine breaks through the clouds.

The return of even more sunshine on Thursday should allow May to start with 80-degree warmth. A lingering shower or thunderstorm will keep Washington, D.C., unsettled.

This Day In Weather History

Centre County, PA (1792)
Quote from the diary of William Colbert, a Methodist Circuit Rider up in Centre County: "A very cold morning. It was surprising to see so much snow on the ground at this season of the year. The limbs of the peach trees broke, and large limbs of the oaks broke down, and saplings bent across the road. It began to snow last night before we went to bed. I came out of my way by Lamb's to Phillip Antes."

Oklahoma (1965)
A total of 9 inches of rain in 6 hours causes flooding on Sugar Creek.
