Today was arguably the fall’s nicest so far, although I’ve said that about a number of others.  (When you can’t decide which day is the best among a plethora of perfect tens, that’s a good problem to have).  A cold front slips into the region tomorrow with morning clouds and showers, so it won’t be as nice.  But the day may well redeem itself with some afternoon sunshine and mild temperatures.

Through Tonight: Some increasing high clouds, especially late at night.  The clouds and light breeze from the south (5-10 mph) make for a mild night, with lows 55-60 (suburbs-city).

Tomorrow (Tuesday): Becoming mostly cloudy in the morning with scattered showers (60 percent chance of measurable rain) as the cold front passes.  Clouds decrease during the afternoon,  and, as cooler air lags some distance behind the front, high rebound to 70-75.  A breeze from west and southwest blows at around 10 to 15 mph.
