Heavy Rain Possible as Moisture Levels Rise
And the high amounts of moisture in the atmosphere could lead to heavy rain producing thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon. If we were to think of the atmosphere like a sponge, and were to fill up the sponge with water and then wring it out, we would potentially have a little over two inches of water, or rain, that would fall. Atmospheric moisture levels will be very high Tuesday afternoon and if thunderstorms develop along and ahead of a warm front during the afternoon, heavy rainfall would be a big concern. Especially since the storms would be slow moving.
