A frontal system will affect the area on Tuesday and Tuesday night.
A strong area of low pressure will move through the Great Lakes on Tuesday. For our area, we will see a period of rain as the cold front approaches.
While spotty light showers are possible during the morning, most of the rain should hold off until mid to late afternoon and especially the evening.
Rain may be moderate or briefly heavy for a time with the main frontal band. Rain amounts look to be highest to the north and west. Some areas should exceed an inch of rain especially up towards the Poconos, and cannot rule out some localized amounts near to above 1.50 inches.
Closer to the NYC area, amounts should drop closer to one half to three quarters of an inch, with a quarter to half inch of rain expected in the southeast portion of the area.
As you can see in the image below, the rain will move from Southeast to Northeast during the day tomorrow.
