Today (Wednesday): High pressure holds on for today even as it shifts offshore, allowing some clouds into the picture. We’ll call it partly cloudy with continued low humidity.

Tonight: Low pressure moving in from the south should push rain into the area after 8 or 9 p.m. Rain is then likely through much of the night, as lows settle in the mid-60s under mostly cloudy skies. Confidence: Medium-High
