PM Update: Sunshine to fade Wednesday, still warm

Another splendid fall day has about drawn to a close. Full-on sunshine pushed temperatures into the pleasant 65-70 degree range. Before the weather takes a turn for the worse, we may squeeze in one more mild, dry day tomorrow even as clouds increase.

Through Tonight: Skies are clear and winds are light early, allowing temperatures to quickly fall off this evening. Late tonight, a light breeze from the south may kick in, stabilizing temperatures a bit. Lows range from near 40 in the cooler suburbs to the upper 40s downtown.

Wednesday: We awake to sunshine, or at least filtered sunshine through high clouds. As the day wears on, clouds lower and thicken. But winds from the south make it a mild one, with highs near 70. While I can’t rule out a sprinkle or stray shower (20% chance), most or all shower activity should hold off until some time after the p.m. commute home.

No one got hit says the Bad Astronomy blog which has more....
