6/2 CBS2 Tuesday Morning Weather Headlines

By Giorgio Panetta,
CBS2 Chief Meteorologist/Weather Producer

Morning all,

Give yourself a little extra time this morning as you head out the door. There could be some heavy rain plaguing your commute leading to ponding on roads, and therefore some delays. Lower visibility will be a big problem for the morning drive.

Conditions will improve, however, this afternoon. The stationary front weaves past us and leaves a partly sunny sky in its wake for tomorrow.

Check back in soon for the latest.

NASA has carried out testing of a series of non-stick coatings on the aircraft’s wings, finding that one inspired by lotus leaves showed good potential to shrug off blasts of bug guts to lessen drag and, by extension, ease the consumption of fuel.
