Significant cool down and rain on the way

Rain and cooler temps arrive next week

Unseasonably warm temperatures for the Tri-State today as we topped out at 87 degrees. But tomorrow will bring a big thermal change. I'm tracking a cold front that will break the warm grip and bring in significant fall cooling. We'll see clouds increasing late this evening but rain should hold off until Monday morning. Overnight, lows near 65 degrees.

Goodbye warm, hello refreshing fall

The early Monday morning commute will hold a slight chance of rain as a cold front moves closer. The chances increases by 10 a.m. Most of the Tri-State will get some rainfall and there's a chance of isolated thunderstorms. At this point, those storms will not be severe but may contain gusty winds. Rainfall totals will fall between .10"-.25" with higher totals in and near thunderstorms. Rain should exit the areas by 5 p.m., leaving us with a couple of hours of sunshine.

Because much of the day we'll be in rain and clouds, temperatures will only make it into the lower to mid 70s.

Tuesday morning will start with a chill in the 40s for many communities and winds will be breezy out of the west. An area of low pressure over the Great Lakes could produce a few down the pike showers for our northern counties Wednesday. Highs top out in the upper 60s, our coolest day high forecast of the week.

Temperatures will slowly moderate into the lower to mid 70s by the end of the week and there will be an abundance of sunshine. Enjoy!
