Cloudy Tuesday makes way for heavy rainfall overnight

Clouds and some showers are to be expected during the Tuesday morning commute, but the rain will be very light until the later evening hours.

Steadier rain will move in overnight, and it's looking to be a soaker. Keep that in mind if you have plans to be out and about around 8 or 9 p.m. Tuesday night.

The rain will continue throughout the night and into Wednesday morning. Rainfall totals are predicted to be more than an inch.
