PM Update: Picture perfect weather conditions prevail through Friday

Aside from high pollen levels, today registered few objections. Sunshine, comfortably mild temperatures, dry air, and a light breeze justified the perfect 10 rating. A crisp night lies ahead followed by more pleasurable weather conditions to close the work week.

Through Tonight: Get outside if you can - the air will feel great. Evening temperatures drop back through the 60s, so grab a jacket if you’re going to be out late. Early morning lows range from the mid-50s downtown with the mid-to-upper 40s in the cooler suburbs.

Friday: Congrats on your choice of days if you’re taking vacation. Skies are sunny, the air is dry, and breezes are light (from the east at 5 to 10 mph). Like today, temperatures rise to around 75 degrees.
