Gloomy weekend drags on, but sun returns Tuesday
More than an inch of rain recorded in Gainesville since Friday night

Over the past week, employees of the Buford Corn Maze have recorded 5 inches of rain. The rain causes the corn stalks to be weaker and the trails to be soggy and muddy.

Dry weather is on the way — but we're going to have to endure a couple more soggy days first.

More than an inch and a quarter of rain was recorded in Gainesville from Friday to Saturday evening, according to the National Weather Service recording station at Lee Gilmer Memorial Airport. And when it hasn't been pouring or drizzling, the sun has remained hidden behind a shroud of clouds.

Sunday isn't likely to be much better, with a chance of light rain on and off throughout the day and still no sunshine to be found. Temperatures will be much cooler as well, with a high in the mid-50s.

Monday starts the work week with a 50 percent chance of more rain amid gusty winds and a high in the lower 50s. The rain and clouds will begin moving out by Monday night, and Tuesday promises some glimpse of the sun and highs back in the mid-60s.

The rest of the week promises to be clearer and cooler, with a chance of storms moving back in by Wednesday night and Thursday.
