Hagerstown is in for some rainy spring weather this week, according to the National Weather Service.

The weather system that just moved through the area dropped 0.54 inch of rain in the city, the weather service said. The forecast also calls for a chance of rain again today, Friday and Saturday.

The precipitation is being caused by a single weather system with different areas of low pressure expected to travel along its frontal boundary, said Trina Heiser, a technician with the weather service's office in Sterling, Va.

The chance of rain today is 30 percent and Thursday's forecast is mostly cloudy with a high near 66 degrees, the weather service said.

There is a 70 percent chance of rain Friday and a 40 percent chance of rain Saturday, the weather service said.

Temperatures are expected to be near 60 degrees today, near 66 degrees Thursday, and about 55 degrees Friday and Saturday.

 A cold front is expected to move into the area Monday afternoon, Heiser said.
