Warm Weather Gives Way to Stormy Tuesday

Periods of Heavy Rain Expected Tuesday

A gorgeous Monday welcomed us all back to work after a long weekend, but that warm air will give way to a cold, dreary Tuesday.

In fact, there's a 100 percent chance of rain, with some periods heavy at times, said NBC4 meteorologist Doug Kammerer. The heaviest rain is expected in our area Tuesday between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m..

The huge storm front, stretching from Florida to the Great Lakes, has warm air in front of it, which is what we saw Monday -- but lots of cold air behind it, making for a chillier weather once the storm moves through.

Temperatures are expected to be between 53 and 58 degrees Tuesday morning. A high of 63 Tuesday will fall into lower temps Wednesday and Thursday, with highs expected to be only around 52.

Snow is expected in the mountains to the west of our region, but as the front moves through, we'll be left with cold, dry weather on Wednesday.
