Tonight: Partly to mostly cloudy. Showers developing late. Low: 43°
Tuesday : Showers and thunderstorms. Much warmer. High: 66°
Good afternoon! Showers we have seen around today should slowly push out of the Tri-State this evening. Expect temperatures in the 40s. We will see partly to mostly cloudy skies overnight with readings dipping into the lower 40s. But temperatures should begin to rise late tonight as a warm front moves our way. This warm front represents the leading edge of much warmer air we will feel tomorrow. Expect high temperatures into the middle 60s on Tuesday. But this warm front, along with an approaching disturbance will also kick off some showers and even thunderstorms Tuesday morning through Tuesday afternoon. It's not out of the question a few of these storms could become strong. We'll be in the warm sector of a storm system moving across the region Tuesday night into early Wednesday with more clusters of showers and storms possible during this time. Some of these storms could also be strong or severe from Tuesday night through Wednesday morning. The Storm Prediction Center has placed much of the Tri-State in a slight risk area for severe weather on both Tuesday and Wednesday. Cooler weather will follow this system by the end of the week with even a chance for a few more flakes of snow. For the latest on the timing of the rain and storms ahead and for a look at the changing temperatures this week, please join Meteorologist Erica Collura for Local 12 News First at Four and again at 5:30. I'll have updates on Local 12 News at 5 and 6. Have a good evening!
