If you didn’t mind the breeze, today was close to ideal.  Under clearing skies and lowering humidity, highs ranged from 75-80.  Beautiful sunshine repeats Saturday, with less wind.  Sunday looks decent too, although some afternoon and evening storms are a possibility.

Through Tonight: Clear and delightful.  Open up the windows and enjoy lows from the mid-50s in the cooler suburbs to near 60 downtown. Winds are generally light from the northwest and west.

Tomorrow (Saturday): One of our better days of the month.  Expect wall-to-wall sunshine, light winds from the west, and highs near 80.  Humidity is comfortably low (dew points in the 50s).

Saturday night:  Mostly clear, and a little milder than tonight.  Lows range from the upper 50s in the cooler suburbs to the low-to-mid 60s downtown.

Sunday (Father’s Day): The day starts off promising, with sunshine.  But during the afternoon, clouds increase a bit and there’s a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms.  It’s a bit warmer and more humid, with highs in the mid-80s.  Winds come in from the southwest at 10-15 mph.
