PM Update: Cool and clammy into the night, but a nice Thursday follows

Though it rained off and on much of the day, it has not amounted to much (except in some places to the south and west). Mainly light activity has been at least enough to wet the ground and remind us it can still rain around here! Highs near or above 60 happened after midnight, and we’ve fallen into the cool and clammy low-and-mid 50s this afternoon. The risk for showers continues through the night, but they’ll remain rather light, and we should see breaks in the action here and there.

Through Tonight: Off and on rain showers and sprinkles, mainly light, continue to be a threat through the night. Odds of that rain go from likely early to a slight chance by sunrise. It’s cool out there this evening, with lows settling to a range from the mid-40s to lower 50s.

Tomorrow (Thursday): Most of the rain should be out of here by morning, but we can’t quite rule out a passing sprinkle early. Other than that, looks like partly cloudy skies and a pretty nice one on tap! Plan on highs reaching mostly into the upper 60s or near 70.
