PM Update: Humidity stays low, but warming trend begins Wednesday

Today’s weather was tough to beat. Sure it was breezy at times, but the abundance of sunshine and absence of humidity made it a pleasure to be outdoors. A lovely night lies ahead, it’s almost fall-like with crisp morning temps. Wednesday’s not at all bad considering the low humidity but, by afternoon, temperatures turn a bit toasty.

Through Tonight: Clear, calm and cool. The dry air (dew points upper 40s) helps temperatures taking a steady fall, down to near 50 in the cooler suburbs to near 60 downtown. Winds are light.

Wednesday: The walk to work or school feels great. Even the midday sun doesn’t feel too bad, as we near 80 degrees. By late afternoon, as the mercury reaches the mid-to-upper 80s, the air may start to feel a bit less comfortable. Unfortunately, it’s just a small taste of what’s to come.
