While Tuesday's rain is not expected to cause widespread flooding issues around the city, postponements to outdoor activities and slow travel are likely to result.

The rain will prevent temperatures on Tuesday from rising out of the lower 60s. In fact, temperatures will fall into 50s in the afternoon.

An even colder Wednesday will unfold despite the departure of the rain and plenty of sun shining. Temperatures will struggle to climb into the lower 50s.

As the chilly air settles in, subfreezing overnight low temperatures should return to the northern and western suburbs Tuesday night. Frost issues in the suburbs may follow for Wednesday night.

More seasonable highs are expected by Friday.
