PM Update: In the (mostly) sunny sweet spot

As our second straight amazing day comes to close, we await the closing act of our sweet spring day trifecta (with perhaps an encore Thursday). Indeed, another pleasantly cool evening lies ahead to be followed by beautiful blue skies tomorrow. After an underwhelming March and April, this is most welcome.

Through Tonight: Besides some high clouds at times, it’s mostly clear overnight. If you awake early to see the four planets aligned together in the pre-sunrise sky, viewing conditions are more than likely quite good. Overnight lows range from the low 50s downtown to the low 40s in the cooler suburbs.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): The National Weather Service said it well in this afternoon’s discussion:

IF YOU LIKED TODAY...TOMORROW SHOULD BE MORE OF THE SAME. VERY LITTLE CHANGES TO THE UPPER LEVEL PATTERN. ANOTHER DAY WITH HIGH TEMPS IN THE LOW-TO-MID 70S.

Like today, we may see some high clouds at times but otherwise mostly sunny skies. Winds will be light.
