A cold front will be slowly pushing across the east, bringing numerous showers and thunderstorms to the area. A rich feed of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico ahead of the front is bringing high humidity to the region, fueling the potential for heavy rain and strong storms. The system will begin to move offshore Tuesday.
