As we approach Tuesday, the precipitation is expected to persist, with a forecast of prolonged rainfall for the entirety of the day.

There is a 90% probability that the rain will continue, which could result in an additional 25% to 0.5 inches of water being added to an already saturated cityscape.

However, individuals seeking respite should not be complacent, as it is anticipated that Tuesday evening may witness a combination of precipitation, including both rain and snow, commencing after 1 am.
