By Ian Livingston

Showers continue tomorrow, heaviest during p.m.

The brilliant weather of the past few days has ended, and today was pretty cloudy on the whole. Still, temperatures rising to near 60 are not too bad for this time of year. Next up is some rain, which begins to threaten later this evening before lasting through tomorrow. We're probably not looking at major rain amounts, but enough to make the day pretty soggy.


Radar & lightning: Latest regional radar shows movement of precipitation and lightning strikes over past two hours. Refresh page to update. Click here or on image to enlarge. Or see radar bigger on our Weather Wall.

Through Tonight: Any breaks in the clouds fill in and a risk of showers arrives around 8 p.m. or so. If you're going to the game, check SkinsCast, and be prepared for some mainly light showers. After midnight, periods of showers will be possible through morning. Lows fall to the low-or-mid 40s in the suburbs to the upper 40s downtown.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): Low pressure moving up from the south ends up passing to our west. This means showers are possible most of the day, but steady rains should be briefer than if the storm passed to our east. The heaviest activity should come during the second half of daylight hours, tapering back to scattered showers during the evening then winding down. Highs reach the mid-50s to near 60. Winds increase late in the day and that trend continues into Wednesday.

Cyclone Giri: Cyclone Giri ravaged parts of Burma last month. Though largely unreported, the storm has left at least 100,000 people homeless. The Guardian presents a handful of photos documenting just some of the massive devastation brought to the region by the intense storm.
