A "backdoor cold front" is a push of colder air that comes in from the opposite direction as most of our cold fronts usually do - entering from the east and northeast. Tuesday's backdoor cold front sets up cooler air for the rest of the week, with an increased chance of much needed rain at times this week, as well.
