WIDESPREAD RAIN WILL MOVE EAST BY WEDNESDAY MORNING...WITH A LINGERING SHOWER POSSIBLE ACROSS THE RIDGES AT THAT TIME. SKIES COULD BRIEFLY CLEAR OUT LATE TUESDAY INTO EARLY WEDNESDAY...BUT COLD ADVECTION BEHIND THE FRONT AND WINDS SLOWLY VEERING TO THE WEST-NORTHWEST SHOULD ALLOW CLOUDS TO REDEVELOP AND BRING A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS AGAIN TO THE INTERSTATE 80 CORRIDOR.
