Today’s mild – though sometimes wind-blasted – sunshine was a nice change from Monday’s gloom. Wednesday delivers another agreeable spring day, despite continued breeziness.

Through Tonight: Winds diminish some overnight – eventually to around 5 mph – under partly cloudy skies. Lows range from the upper 30s in the colder suburbs to the mid-to-upper 40s downtown.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): Plentiful sunshine from morning to evening but winds do kick up some in the afternoon. They blow out of the northwest at 10-15 mph, gusting over 20 mph at times. Highs are comparable to today, perhaps a couple degrees cooler, landing in the low-to-mid 60s.

Pollen: Counts were washed out due to rain early this morning- but no doubt plenty of tree pollen was released this afternoon.
