WEATHER ALERT DAY: Tracking severe chances for Tuesday

TODAY: This morning will start out humid and warm with sunshine filtering into the area, but clouds will build throughout the day. Highs will top out in the upper 80s.

TONIGHT: As the remnants of Tropical Storm Cristobal approach the area, we're tracking heavy rain chances overnight into Tuesday morning. An ABC 17 Stormtrack Weather Alert Day is in effect as the storm moves into the region. The latest timings and impacts from the storm system can be found in the Weather Alert Day Blog. Cristobal is moving rather quickly and should start to impact our southern counties late tonight/early tomorrow morning. We'll be picking up roughly an inch to three inches of rain by tomorrow morning. Because of this, flash flooding will be a concern.

EXTENDED: Tuesday afternoon could also show us some strong to severe storms if Cristobal clears out quickly enough to allow some sunlight to warm our atmosphere before a cold front pushes through the area in the afternoon. These storms, if they develop, could produce some windy conditions as well as some small hail. We're expecting cooler temperatures through the end of the week. We're expecting to remain fairly quiet beyond Tuesday too.
