FORECAST DISCUSSION:

Showers linger Tuesday, but it will not be a steady rain the entire day. It'll be mostly cloudy, cool and damp with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s.

Colder air settles in overnight -- and Wednesday will be chilly with highs in the 40s. This colder air sets the stage for a strengthening nor'easter to impact the area Thursday and Thursday night. In the metro, we'll start with a wintry mix in the morning before transitioning into a cold rain. More wintry weather is expected out west. This should be mostly a rain event for areas east of I 95.
