Rain to return
Cloudy skies will give way to scattered showers and thunderstorms along an advancing warm front. Humidity is expected to return as well with highs heading for 70°. At this time, it appears unlikely that any thunderstorms will become severe. As we get into tonight, a surface low and cold front will cross the area bringing steadier and potentially heavier rains across the viewing area while temperatures fall into the 40s ny mid-morning Wednesday. An additional 1-2" of rain will be possible, and behind the cold front some chilly showers may continue into Wednesday.
A freeze will be possible on Thursday Morning while sunshine returns in the afternoon. More storms come in on Friday, perhaps complicating evening events. At this time, Saturday looks drier and pleasant.
