Big weather changes coming as rain, freeze watch for Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

ACCUWEATHER - Rain will return and the mild spell will dramatically end on Tuesday as a blast of colder air sweeping in from the Plains arrives. The heaviest rain will pour down Tuesday afternoon.

Residents should not get excited about viewing the lunar eclipse early Tuesday morning due clouds and a couple of showers which will precede the steadier rain.

While Tuesday's rain is not expected to cause widespread flooding issues around the city, postponements to outdoor activities and slow travel are likely to result.

The rain will prevent temperatures on Tuesday from rising out of the middle 60s. In fact, temperatures will fall into 50s in the afternoon.

An even colder Wednesday will unfold despite the departure of the rain and plenty of sun shining. Temperatures will struggle to climb much above the 55-degree mark.

As the chilly air settles in, subfreezing overnight low temperatures should return to the northern and western suburbs Tuesday night. Frost issues in the suburbs may follow for Wednesday night.

More seasonable highs are expected by Friday.
