PM Update: A little warmer, a little cloudier Tuesday, still delightful

We’re on a roll weatherwise and keep it going Tuesday.  Following today’s mostly sunny low-to-mid 70s, we inch up into the upper 70s tomorrow.  No rain to worry about until perhaps  late Tuesday night.

Through Tonight: A very pleasant evening to be out and about with temperatures gradually falling through the 60s by between 10 p.m. and midnight. So grab a light jacket if you’re planning to be out late.  Under clear skies, early morning lows range from the low-to-mid 40s in our cooler suburbs to the low 50s downtown.  Calm winds.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): Mostly sunny in the morning with increasing high and mid-level clouds in the afternoon.  As winds shift from out of the west to southerly (around 5-10 mph), temperatures get a bit of boost, with highs in the upper 70s.
