PM Update: Great weather both tonight and Wednesday

It was a muggy, sometimes showery morning but then a cold front booted the humidity out of town. Dew points have fallen into the pleasant 50s even as sunshine lifted temperatures to near 90 this afternoon. But we fall back into the 60s tonight and tomorrow it’s just about perfect.

Through Tonight: The dry air is here and the cooler temperatures will shortly follow. We’ll have a very pleasant evening with temperatures quickly falling through the 80s and eventually the 70s. Early morning lows dip all the way into the upper 50s in the cooler suburbs to the mid-to-upper 60s downtown.

Wednesday: A very, very nice day. We have sunshine, a light breeze from the north and low humidity. There’s no repeat of today’s 90 degree temperatures as highs range from 82-87.
