Rain will be steady for Tuesday morning commute

HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

The beginning of May is off to a soggy start, and that wet weather will continue for Tuesday.

On Monday night, Chief Meteorologist Bruce DePrest said sky conditions varied from partly to mostly cloudy, but rain will move in after midnight.

Track the rain with Early Warning Pinpoint Doppler here.

On Monday, DePrest said some towns picked up a decent amount of rain. 

"Windsor Locks received 0.66” and Harwinton receive 0.49”. We received reports of 0.34” in Hartford, 0.30” in Wethersfield, and 0.25” in Hampton," he said.

After rain moves in overnight, it will become steady in the pre-dawn hours.

While the Tuesday morning commute will be wet, the steady rain should end around lunch time, DePrest said.

"There probably won’t be much rain left for the afternoon drive home. A gray, overcast sky also means another day of unseasonably cool weather with highs in the 50s," he said.

There could be showers from time-to-time on Wednesday and Thursday, but we can expect lengthy spells of dry weather.

Temperatures will stay cool, with daytime highs near 60 degrees.

A steadier rain is expected for Friday.
