PM Update: A fine fall Friday awaits

Very gradually, the clouds and sticky air have departed today, setting up a nice close to the work week. A pleasant evening is followed by an enjoyably warm and not too humid Friday afternoon. Soak it in, as colder air waits in the wings.

Through Tonight: Drier air continues to filter into the region as skies transition from partly cloudy to mostly clear. Enough low level moisture lingers for some patchy early morning fog. Temperatures are perfect for opening up the windows, with lows 52-60 (suburbs-city).

Friday: Mostly sunny and comfortably warm. Highs ride up to 80-85 with a light wind from the west at 5-10 mph. Humidity levels are low-moderate, with dew points in the mid-50s.
