The last of the heavy showers are moving out of the northeastern counties early this morning. In the wake will be abundant cloud coverage this morning along with a few light and isolated showers. Temperatures remain mild to warm this morning residing in the upper 60s and low 70s. The air is very muggy with dew point temperatures at or near the current temperature. This will likely lead to some patchy but thick fog in some locations.

As we move into and through the late morning hours, we will see a little more sunshine. It will appear after we get some atmospheric mixing from the heat of the day. Later this afternoon and evening, a few showers will begin to stream in ahead of the strong cold font slated for Tuesday. Some showers will pack a punch, but the bulk of the activity will wait until the following day. Tuesday comes with a good chance for at least shower activity. The heating will also develop thunderstorms. Heavy downpours and strong wind gusts are possible at times. For now, the risk of severe storms remains low. Rain will wrap up Tuesday night, and most of Wednesday looks good. There may be enough low pressure still in place to pop-up a few isolated storms on Wednesday afternoon. Temperatures will run cooler and we will struggle to reach the 80s on Wednesday. Humidity will also lower and things will feel comfortable for a few days.
