PM Update: Fewer clouds Friday, keeping comfortable

Our break from 90-degree temperatures yesterday lasted all of one day. For the 12th time in 13 days, we reached at least 90 today. The humidity was also up there and a few showers have popped up this afternoon/evening. Those will fade overnight and drier air filters in for Wednesday.

Through Tonight: Widely scattered showers continue for the next couple hours before dying off. Sky cover will gradually transition from mostly cloudy to partly cloudy overnight, with lows from the mid-60s in the cooler suburbs to the low 70s downtown.

Wednesday: High pressure to the north should suppress shower chances and much in the way of cloud cover. This is one of the week’s more tranquil days with mostly sunny skies and highs from the mid-80s to near 90. Winds are from the east at 5-10 mph.
