Rain Now, A Break For a Bit For Some, More Showers Later

Chilled, damp, raw can aptly describe this morning's weather around the region as a swath of rain pushes east and northeast through the region.  Temperatures are in the 50's in many spots -- some 20 to 25 degrees cooler than where we were at this point yesterday depending on where you reside.

This first round of rain is moving through now with energy associated with the frontal boundary offshore.  Chilled northerly winds are feeding into the wave of energy and rain has broken out across the region.  This will continue to push east and northeast over the next few hours.  A bit of a lull or even full break later this afternoon is possible as this first wave continues to push through Jersey and Delaware.  Highest rainfall totals in the region will likely reside to the city's south and east with today's system.

A second wave of energy is back in Ohio and is also pushing east, containing showers in a band that currently stretches from Buffalo to Cleveland to Cincinnati.  This shot of showers will push towards us for the dinner hour and the early evening hours.
