This afternoon turned into a gem, with partly to mostly sunny skies and highs in the comfy low 70s. For Wednesday, we have more in the way of cloud cover, but temperatures are still enjoyable. Rain chances likely hold off until overnight.

Through Tonight: Variably cloudy tonight. We may see some clearing towards the middle of the night, and then a return of partial cloud cover towards morning. Lows range from the mid-40s in the cooler suburbs to the low 50s downtown. Snag a light jacket if out and about. Winds are light from the northeast.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): We may awaken to some sunshine, but the day turns out cloudier than not. That puts a lid on temperatures, with highs in the upper 60s for most spots. Winds are light from the east and southeast.
