NEW YORK (CBS 2) — Make sure you have your rain gear Tuesday.

“Leave a little extra time, not only for your morning race but for your afternoon fun as well,” said CBS 2HD’s meteorologist John Elliott. “Rain, letting up a bit right now, but more rain is headed our way.”

Tuesday’s high will reach 57, which is higher than the normal 53, and far short of the record 72 set 82 years ago, back in 1928.

We can expect on and off showers throughout the day. Overnight will bring some more active weather, courtesy of a low pressure system pushing in from the south. The system should be over our area Wednesday.

There’s even potential for an isolated thunderstorm overnight as well.

“We could see some bigger drops and also some heavier rain. And then we have a leftover shower or two through midday, but then the wind is going to crank up. So we’re going to feel some changes on your Wednesday. Even though it’s the warmest day of the week, it will usher in some cooler air,” Elliott said.

“Do we need the rain? Well, yeah we do. We’re a little over halfway through November and we’re almost an inch below normal,” Elliott said.
