Steady rain followed by clearing skies on Tuesday

HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

A steady rain impacted the morning commute, but skies will clear later on Tuesday. 

Connecticut residents waking up to some mild temperatures on Tuesday morning and showers will begin to move in from the west.

"We're dealing with moderate to heavy rain in parts of the state this morning, so that will slow down your morning commute," WFSB meteorologist Scot Haney said. 

Rain showers will wrap up by mid-day and some parts of the state will see some sunshine to end the day, Haney said. 

"I won't be surprised if this rain is done and gone by noon time," Haney said. "I think this is going to be a quick mover."

Due to the steady rain for the Tuesday morning commute, Channel 3 declared an Early Warning Weather Day.

Tuesday morning was breezy with winds up to more than 30 mph, Haney said. 

Highs on Tuesday are expected to be in the mid to upper 50's. 

A freeze warning was issued for parts of Connecticut from late Monday night through Wednesday morning. The temperatures are expected to be in upper 20s and lower 30s. The cold temperatures are expected to kill plants, so residents are expected to bring them indoors.
