Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- Columbia's consecutive day dry streak ended Sunday as an area of low pressure brought rain to the Midlands.

A low pressure system developed off the coast and moved northeast Sunday. This brought widespread rain to the area. This was the first time Columbia has had rain since October 8 during Hurricane Matthew.

The clouds and the rain Sunday held temperatures down. Temperatures during the afternoon hours were stuck in the lower and middle 40s for most of the Midlands.

Showers will continue into early Monday morning, but any rain will be very light.

The clouds will slowly erode Monday afternoon as high pressure builds in, but temperatures will still only climb into the upper 50s and lower 60s.

Abundant sunshine is expected for the rest of the workweek with mild days and chilly nights. A front will move through the area late Saturday, but right now no rain is expected. Cooler conditions will return for Sunday, but still no freezes are in the forecast.
