A cold front pressing eastward through the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast will push a band of showers and embedded downpours and thunder into our area during the mid-week time frame.
Expect clouds to lower and thicken up Tuesday night, with some isolated showers – maybe a brief heavier downpour – beginning to pop up around the area very late tonight. Odds for wet weather will continue to gradually increase through the day tomorrow, with downpours becoming likely as we move into Wednesday night.
An influx of warm and increasingly moist air will translate to areas of heavy rain, especially overnight Wednesday. And as such the National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for the area.
Precipitation will taper down Thursday morning and shift eastward as the frontal zone sweeps offshore.
