PM Update: A sunny, mild Wednesday in a mild month

Behind a so-called cold front, temperatures surged into the low 60s today, more than 15 degrees above normal in most spots. Clearing skies tonight allow it to cool off quite a bit, but with abundant sunshine tomorrow and a notable lack of cold air in the eastern U.S., we bounce right back well into the 50s.

Through Tonight: We’ll have some partial cloud cover as well a breeze this evening, but eventually skies clear and winds diminish. That allows the atmosphere to vent some of the mild air into space, with chilly lows near freezing in the colder suburbs and upper 30s downtown.

Wednesday: High pressure overhead gives us mostly sunny skies and mild temperatures. Temperatures climb into the mid- to maybe upper 50s, with light winds from a westerly direction.
