We are being welcomed to scattered rainfall through the Tri-State this morning. I would describe this morning as dreary and cold! Temperatures are in the 40s and rain showers are definitely putting a damper on the skies. Showers should persist through the early part of our Tuesday, before tapering off later this afternoon. Unfortunately, the dry skies this afternoon won't help our temperatures. With excessive cloud cover and northerly winds, afternoon highs will have a challenge moving up the temperature ladder. We'll only reach 51°.

Thankfully, the rain will stay away for atleast the next 24 hours. Overnight, lows will dip down to 46° under mostly cloudy skies. But, as winds begin shifting from out of the south, temperatures will be more seasonable Wednesday afternoon. We're looking at the mid 60s. However, lots of cloud cover will hang around before our next rainmaker.

All eyes are on Tropical Storm Zeta that's expected to re-strengthen back into a hurricane. Right now, it could make landfall late Wednesday into Thursday morning, but with it's outer bands mixing with a passing low to the southeast, significant amounts of rainfall is expected for us here in the Tri-State. The first round of showers could get here as early as Wednesday afternoon. Some could even fire off strong thunderstorm activity. Wet conditions will continue through much of Thursday and that could potentially produce as much as 3" of rain.

We're going to be looking out for another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs should peak in the mid to high 90s with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 105°. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. By that time there is a good potential of some rainfall and storms picking up across the Tri-State. There is a chance we could see some severe weather develop with these storms. We'll start to see relief return Friday afternoon into Saturday.
