Following this morning’s light rain, it’s been a cool and kind of dreary day around here. The swings of spring, right? There’s a lot more cloudiness where that came from in the next day (and beyond), though we may also see a bit more sun tomorrow.

Through Tonight: We’re mostly cloudy through the night, and that cloud blanket helps keep temperatures fairly uniform in the near 50 to mid-50s range. As temperatures near the dew point late night, some patchy fog may form, though a breeze should keep it from being too widespread.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): Looks like we’ll have lots of clouds to deal with again, and perhaps some morning fog. If we’re lucky, we’ll see at least a period of partly sunny skies in the midday as highs range from near 70 to the mid-70s. There could be a shower or t’shower late (20% chance), but activity should want to stay to our north.

Pollen update: Light rain lowered the pollen count a bit, but trees are still in the HIGH range at 333.87 grains per cubic meter of air. Oaks are building toward their pollen release which will be abundant. Grass, weed and mold pollen is all LOW.
