The Hagerstown area could get enough rain this week to match or surpass the amount the area received all summer.

As of Tuesday evening, the Hagerstown area had received .61 inches of rain Tuesday and 1.79 inches for the duration of the weather event that began Monday, according to local weather observer Greg Keefer's website.

The National Weather Service is forecasting more rain tonight and Thursday, with a chance of an additional 3 to 4 1/2 inches of rain during that time, according to its website.

During the entire summer, the area received 4.96 inches of rain, making 2010 the second-driest summer on record, according to Keefer's website at i4weather.net. Keefer's records consider summer to be June 1 to Aug. 31.

His records date to 1898.
