PM Update: Sunny stretch draws to close; warm with shower chances into Wednesday

Our stretch of uninteresting, but unbeatable weather ends today after sunshine and delightful mid-70s this afternoon. High clouds are now streaming in and will gradually lower and thicken into tomorrow. But tomorrow isn’t all bad, with a push of warm air into the region and just scattered rain chances.

Through Tonight: Becoming mostly cloudy and not nearly as chilly as the last few nights. Lows range from 55-60. I can’t rule out a few showers (30 percent chance) after 9 p.m. especially well west of town.

Wednesday: The air has a summery feel - similar to Saturday - with winds coming in from the south at 10-15 mph. Despite considerable cloud cover, we may have some sunny breaks into the afternoon, enough to elevate temperatures from 79-84. A cold front lurks to the north, with a 30-40 percent chance of late afternoon showers and storms, with odds highest to the north and northwest. A few storms could produce locally heavy rain and some gusty (but probably not severe) winds.

Pollen: Trees counts are LOW, grasses and weeds are LOW-MODERATE and mold spores are LOW.
