On Tuesday, while the front will pass through CT in the morning, it may stall nearby, just offshore. The Baltimore metro area will see storms between 4 p.m. and midnight, with the cells intensifying as they move east.




A cold front sweeping across the region is promising to unleash damaging wind gusts, torrential downpours and frequent lightning. There is even a low risk of a tornado.

Weather officials have issued flood warnings for portions of central and northeastern IL following weekend thunderstorms. Between that and the rain, our temperatures will be about 10° cooler than the weekend with highs in the mid to upper 70s Monday afternoon. Expect more comfortable and dry conditions for Tuesday and Wednesday.

"Clouds will give way to some sunshine as it turns less humid", Brown wrote in his daily forecast.

The daytime high should be 83 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.
