FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Keep the umbrella handy & expect scattered showers throughout Tuesday

(WAFF) -

Keep the umbrella handy Tuesday because rain showers can be expected through the day. Temperatures didn’t cool off a whole lot overnight and most are starting this morning in the low-to-mid 50s. In case you were wondering, that’s warmer than the average high for this time of year! These mild readings will hold steady this morning as rain showers continue into the Valley from the west.

A cold front will pass through the area later Tuesday morning and temperatures will fall this afternoon. Winds will be out of the southwest at first, but switch to the northwest around 10 mph behind the front. By the mid-afternoon, temperatures will be falling into the 40s with rain showers tapering off from west to east during the late afternoon. As the rain ends, we should dip into the 30s by 9 p.m. with a north wind making it feel more like the upper 20s. There might be a few overnight flurries, but nothing more significant than that.
